SCC Rules (2017)—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 concerns the 2017 Rules for Expedited Arbitrations of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) (the 2017 SCC Expedited Rules). The 2017 SCC Expedited Rules apply to relevant arbitrations commenced on or after 1 January 2017, unless the parties have agreed otherwise. They are intended to be used for simple disputes or disputes involving relatively small amounts in dispute. They can be used in both domestic and international cases.

It is important to note that different Schedules of Costs apply depending on the commencement date of your arbitration pursuant to the 2017 SCC Expedited Rules. If your 2017 SCC Expedited Rules arbitration was commenced before 1 January 2020, ensure that you consult the Schedule of Costs contained in the version of the 2017 SCC Expedited Rules for that period. Similarly, if your 2017 SCC Expedited Rules arbitration is/was commenced on or after 1 January 2020, ensure that you consult the Schedule of Costs contained in the version of the 2017 SCC Expedited Rules
