ICC (2021)—multi-party, multi-contract, joinder and consolidation

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 issues arising out of multi-party and/or multi-contract arbitration proceedings under the 2021 International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Rules of Arbitration (ICC Rules). These can involve joining additional parties by way of a request for the joinder of additional parties to arbitration proceedings made before or after the confirmation or appointment of any arbitrator, making claims between multiple parties and/or against additional parties, making claims under more than one contract and/or multiple arbitration agreements, and the consolidation of proceedings.

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). For an introduction to the 2021 ICC Rules, see Practice Note: ICC (2021)—introduction to the ICC and arbitration under the ICC Rules.

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