This Practice Note concerns multi-contract arbitration, joinder and consolidation pursuant to the 2017 Arbitration Rules of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) (the 2017 SCC Rules). The 2017 SCC Rules apply to SCC arbitrations commenced on or after 1 January 2017, unless the parties agree otherwise.

It is important to note that different Schedules of Costs apply depending on the commencement date of your arbitration pursuant to the 2017 SCC Rules. If your 2017 SCC Rules arbitration was commenced before 1 January 2020, ensure that you consult the Schedule of Costs contained in the version of the 2017 SCC Rules for that period. Similarly, if your 2017 SCC 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 Rules for that later period, which provide for higher administrative fees. The two versions of the 2017 SCC Rules are available on the SCC’s website.

For guidance on the 2010 SCC Rules, which apply to SCC arbitrations commenced on or after 1 January 2010 (unless the parties agree otherwise), see: SCC arbitration—overview.
