ICC (2021)—expedited procedure

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 considers the expedited procedure under the 2021 International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Rules of Arbitration in force from 1 January 2021 (ICC Rules). The 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).

The ICC’s expedited arbitration procedure was introduced in the 2017 edition of the ICC Rules and brought the ICC’s rules in line with other arbitral institutions, such as the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) and Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC), which provide mechanisms for fast-track resolution of disputes.

Under the ICC expedited procedure, proceedings may be concluded within six months.

For links to guidance on the 2017 and 2012 editions of the ICC Rules, see: ICC arbitration—overview.
