What does it cost?

The costs consist of the fee to the arbitrators/mediator, the administrative fee of the SCC and any expenses incurred. 

The SCC determines the costs based on the amount in dispute, which is the total value of all claims, counterclaims and set-offs. This means that the parties often can anticipate the arbitration costs. Use the calculator to estimate such costs.

When the amount in dispute exceeds EUR 100 000 000 the SCC Board determines the Advance on Costs based on a case by case analysis.
