On 13 September 2013, CRCICA’s Director attended the meeting of the Board of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) which he joined in 2012. The SCC Board appointed five other board members from Russia, Germany, Switzerland, the UK and Sweden. The new appointments continue a tradition that began in 2006, when the SCC Board announced it would include members from outside Sweden for the first time.
SCC Board members are appointed by the Board of Directors of the SCC for a three-year period and are eligible for reappointment for a further three years. The SCC Board consists of a chair, two to three vice chairs and a maximum of 12 additional members.
The Board plays a key role in administering SCC arbitrations, including deciding on prima facie jurisdiction, arbitrator appointments, challenges to arbitrators and arbitration costs.
