THE EUROPEAN COURT OF ARBITRATION

The European Court of Arbitration has two International Registrars, which deal with international arbitration, defined for this purpose as all those which have not all the following characteristics :
•    the parties have the same nationality or domicile
•    the venue is in that country
•    the procedural law of that country applies in addition to the Rules of the European Court of Arbitration, as to matters on which the latter is silent as well as to the mandatory provisions of the former.

THE CHAPTERS
The European Court of Arbitration has national chapters in various countries.
 
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 both to Central or Northern Europe;
•    Office of the International Registrar of Milan, if one of the parties belongs to Southern Europe, Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean or the Middle East;
•    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.
