ICCA Task Force on Standards of Practice in International Arbitration

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. Rather than acting as mandatory rules, the Guidelines will serve as guiding principles of civility in the field and reflect the myriad blends of cultures and situations in which international arbitration is employed.
