ICC (2017)—introduction to the ICC and arbitration under the ICC Rules

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19): Many arbitral organisations have responded to the coronavirus pandemic with practical guidance and/or changes to their usual procedures and ways of working. For information on how this content and relevant arbitration proceedings may be impacted, see Practice Note: Arbitral organisations and coronavirus (COVID-19)—practical impact. For additional information, see: Coronavirus (COVID-19) and arbitration—overview.

This Practice Note introduces the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the International Court of Arbitration of the ICC (ICC Court) and the 2017 ICC Rules of Arbitration (ICC Rules). It also refers to the guidance in the ICC Note to Parties and Arbitral Tribunals on the Conduct of the Arbitration under the ICC Rules of Arbitration (ICC Note). The ICC Rules apply to any ICC arbitrations commenced on or after 1 March 2017, unless the parties have agreed to submit to the rules in force on the date of their arbitration agreement.

The ICC Rules include:

  1. an expedited procedure which automatically applies where the arbitration agreement is entered into after 1 March 2017 and the amount in dispute is below US$2m. In cases above this threshold, the parties must opt-in. For guidance on the ICC expedited procedure, see Practice Note: ICC Rules (2017)—expedited procedure

  2. costs provisions effective from 1 January 2017. For guidance on costs in ICC proceedings, see Practice Note: ICC
