SCC—UNCITRAL procedures

Introduction to the SCC’s UNCITRAL procedures

The Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) has been involved in arbitrations under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules for many years, usually acting as the appointing authority.

On 1 January 2015, the SCC revised its procedures in order to cater specifically for the two different roles that it can have under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules—as appointing authority and as the administering body.

It is important to note that different Schedules of Costs apply depending on the commencement date of your arbitration pursuant to the 2015 SCC Procedures for the Administration of Cases under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules (2015 SCC UNCITRAL Administration Procedures). If your 2015 SCC UNCITRAL Administration Procedures arbitration was commenced before 1 January 2020, ensure that you consult the Schedule of Costs contained in the version of the 2015 SCC UNCITRAL Administration Procedures for that period. Similarly, if your 2015 SCC UNCITRAL Administration Procedures arbitration is/was commenced on or after 1 January 2020, ensure that you consult the Schedule of Costs contained in the version of the 2015 SCC UNCITRAL Administration Procedures for that later period, which provide for higher administrative fees. The two versions of the 2015 SCC UNCITRAL Administration Procedures are available on the SCC’s website.
