SCC Rules (2017)—starting an arbitration and the Request for Arbitration

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 starting an arbitration under 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.
