Commence arbitration

How to commence arbitration in accordance with the SCC Arbitration Rules. 

Arbitration is commenced by the claimant sending a request for arbitration to the SCC. At the same time, the claimant must also pay a registration fee. 

The request for arbitration must include: 

  1. the names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses of the parties and their representatives 
  2. a summary of the dispute 
  3. preliminary information about the relief sought by the claimant 
  4. a copy of or a statement of the contents of the arbitration agreement or arbitration clause relied upon by the claimant 
  5. any comments regarding the number of arbitrators and the seat of arbitration 
  6. where applicable, the name, address, telephone number and email address of the arbitrator appointed by the claimant. 

The request for arbitration plus annexes should be sent by email to:arbitration@sccarbitrationinstitute.com

* Please note that applications for an emergency arbitrator should be sent to:emergencyarbitrator@sccarbitrationinstitute.com

If, for any reason, the documents cannot be sent electronically**, they should be sent by post to: 

Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce 
Box 16050 
103 21 Stockholm, Sweden  

Visitor and delivery address: Brunnsgatan 2, 111 38 Stockholm, Sweden 

** If the request for arbitration and/or annexes are bulky (e.g. if they include binders and/or materials not suitable for email), sufficient sets of all documentation should instead be submitted to be distributed to each of the respondent(s), the Arbitration Institute and the arbitrator(s).
