The SCC Platform and the Ad Hoc Platform are secure digital platforms for communication and file sharing between the parties and the tribunal in an arbitration.
The SCC Platform is used in all SCC cases since 2019, and the Ad Hoc Platform is offered to all ad hoc cases upon request. The SCC Platform Guidelines and the Ad Hoc Platform Guidelines instruct participants in arbitrations on the use of the platforms and address some of the questions that may arise along the way.
The newly-developed SCC Express guidelines are intended to provide information on procedure and use of the Rules for Express Dispute Assessment. The guidelines are not intended, and should not be understood, as arbitration rules. Further information and “how-to” guides are available on the respective platforms.
You can also reach out to the SCC secretariat with any questions you may have.
Guidelines for Arbitrators
The SCC's Guidelines for Arbitrators have been developed to facilitate and streamline our procedure.
The Guidelines serve as a practical tool and source of information for the arbitrators when sitting in an SCC arbitration.
The Guidelines contain information about
- Calculation of fees to the arbitrators.
- Compensation for expenses.
- Daily allowance.
- VAT applicable to the arbitrator’s fee.
- Invoicing of arbitrator’s fee.
- Appointment of a secretary.
- Written submissions to be provided to the Secretariat.
- Delivery of the award to the parties.
The Guidelines also contain the SCC Model Award and information on when instructions of how to appeal should be included in the award.
