The following Arbitration guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
An arbitration under the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration (the Swiss Rules) administered by the Swiss Chambers’ Arbitration Institution (SCAI) is commenced by a Notice of Arbitration. The Notice of Arbitration must be submitted to the Secretariat at any of the addresses listed in Appendix A to the Swiss Rules (art 3.1) which are seven Chambers of Commerce in Switzerland:
Basel Chamber of Commerce
Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Bern
Geneva Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services
Neuchatel Chamber of Commerce and Industry
Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Ticino
Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Vaud
Zurich Chamber of Commerce
The arbitral proceedings are deemed to have commenced on the date upon which the Notice of Arbitration is received by the Secretariat (art 3.2).
The Secretariat may ask the claimant to complete an incomplete Notice of Arbitration, to provide additional copies or to provide a translation if the notice is not submitted in either English, German, French or Italian.
If the claimant complies with the Secretariat's directions within the applicable time limit, the Notice of Arbitration is deemed to have been filed on the date upon which the first version was received by the Secretariat (art 3.5). The Secretariat will then provide a copy of the notice with exhibits to the respondent (art 3.5).
