HOW TO START ARBITRAL PROCEEDINGS

Arbitral proceedings are instituted either when a dispute arises under an arbitration clause in a contract or – when the dispute has arisen – by entering into a submission  agreement.

The Request for Arbitration is filed with the

  • Office of the International Registrar of Strasbourg, if the parties belong to Central or Northern Europe;

  • Office of the International Registrar of Valencia, if one of the parties belongs to Southern Europe, Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, the Black Sea countries;

  • the Secretariat of the National Chapter, if it concerns a dispute between parties belonging to the same country and the European Court of Arbitration has a Chapter in it.

An advance on the fees and dues of the proceedings has to be paid by the Claimant and by the Respondent at the time of their first act of the proceedings in the amount stated in the Arbitration Rules and its schedule of fees and dues. Further advances will be requested during the proceedings. www.cour-europe-arbitrage.org/content.php
