Guidelines for Renewal in CRCICA’s Panel of Arbitrators

Inclusion on CRCICA’s Panel of Arbitrators is for a period of 5 years, ending on 31 December of the final year.

An arbitrator applying for continued inclusion will be required to:

  • Detail the experience he/she has as arbitrator during their term of inclusion on CRCICA’s Panel of Arbitrators; and
  • Confirm continued compliance with the criteria for entry onto the Panel (as appropriate).

The Centre may take into account, where available, feedback from counsel and co-arbitrators received as part of the evaluation process CRCICA undertakes in relation to its administered cases.

The final decision as to whether an arbitrator’s inclusion on CRCICA’s Panel of Arbitrators will be renewed will be taken by the Centre, which reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to admit or reject applications for continued inclusion on the Panel of Arbitrators. In making that decision, the Centre may direct that an arbitrator undertake specific training or demonstrate particular experience before continued inclusion is confirmed.

The Centre may also, in its absolute discretion, allow arbitrators fulfilling areas of particular requirement including, inter alia, nationality, country of residence, language ability and experience, to remain on the Panel of Arbitrators beyond the expiry of their initial term.

The decision of the Centre as to whether a name remains on or is removed from the Panel of Arbitrators is final.
