As cases have become more complex and amounts in dispute have increased, the open use and ready acceptance of arbitral secretaries has grown. For most arbitral tribunals, the secretary takes on many tasks beyond the purely administrative - a development that some view as controversial. Young ICCA formed the Task Force on the Use and Appointment of Arbitral Secretaries to consider the views of the international arbitration community on the issue of arbitral secretaries and to develop a transparent and robust approach to their use and appointment. This approach is codified in the Young ICCA Guide on Arbitral Secretaries.
