ICCA Task Force on Standards of Practice in International Arbitration

Guidelines on Standards of Practice in International ArbitrationThe ICCA Task Force on Standards of Practice in International Arbitration is pleased to announce the release of its Guidelines on Standards of Practice. The Guidelines are published as the ninth volume of the ICCA Reports Series.

 

The ICCA Task Force on Standards of Practice in International Arbitration is chaired by ICCA Advisory Board Member Guido Santiago Tawil and Global Head of White & Case’s International Arbitration practice Abby Cohen Smutny. The Task Force was established with the purpose of promoting minimum civility standards within the international arbitration community and providing practitioners with an official set of guidelines on the subject.

 

The Guidelines on Standards of Practice are intended to serve as guiding principles of civility in the field, reflecting the many cultures and situations in which international arbitration is employed. The international expertise of the Task Force members, drawn from the diverse jurisdictions in which they practise, has been key to ensuring that the Guidelines reflect the broad consensus in the international arbitration community as to the general principles of civility expected of all participants during the course of an international arbitration.

 

The Guidelines on Standards of Practice in International Arbitration are now available online.
