Three new model clauses for the SCC Express
With the SCC Express, a dispute can be solved within three weeks and for a fixed fee. The SCC now offers three different sets of model clauses for including the SCC Express in contracts.
The SCC Express is an efficient and time-sensitive dispute resolution mechanism for parties seeking a quick resolution to their conflicts. It is particularly suitable for disputes when two contracting parties value a good ongoing business relationship, appreciate being able to work quickly on a joint project and will be looking for a timely and cost-effective dispute resolution process. A model clause for the SCC Express is a great inclusion into a contract when the companies foresee that swift resolution of a potential dispute is of paramount importance.
There are three different sets of model clauses for the SCC Express:
- A limited version for disputes regarding the interpretation or application of specific contractual provision/s
- A broader version for all disputes that arise out of the contract, including an arbitration clause
- An escalation clause with SCC Express as one of the steps for the resolution of disputes arising out of the contract or contractual provision/s
The SCC Express was launched in 2021. The first SCC Express was requested in June 2023 and the procedure is ongoing.
