ICC (2021)—appointing the tribunal

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.

Appointing the tribunal is an important step in any arbitration. Having the right tribunal is key to ensuring the arbitration runs efficiently and that a just result is reached.

The method of appointment of the arbitral tribunal will depend on several factors, most importantly any provision made by the parties in their arbitration agreement or in some other written document—for additional guidance on this topic, see Practice Note: Choosing your arbitral tribunal.

This Practice Note considers the provisions relating to the appointment of an arbitral tribunal in arbitration proceedings under the 2021 International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Rules of Arbitration (ICC Rules). References in this Practice Note to articles of and appendices to the ICC Arbitration Rules are to the 2021 ICC Rules unless otherwise indicated.

The 2021 ICC Rules apply to any ICC arbitrations commenced on or after 1 January 2021 (unless the parties expressly agree that an earlier version of the ICC Rules will apply, which is unlikely).
