With its first arbitration case registered in 1984, CRCICA’s caseload has expanded exponentially reaching over 1600 registered arbitration cases, whether institutional or ad hoc, covering the full spectrum of commercial and economic activities on local, regional and international levels. 

For the years 2012 to 2021, CRCICA registered 743 cases: 646 institutional cases (i.e. 87%) and 97 ad hoc proceedings (i.e. 13%).

Parties to CRCICA arbitrations and arbitrators appointed in CRCICA administered cases come from more than 50 countries all over the globe. CRCICA has wide experience managing purely local disputes where all parties and arbitrators are Egyptian; cases with an international element; as well as purely international cases where none of the parties or the contract in dispute has a link to Egypt.
