The International Court of Arbitration is the independent arbitration body of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). It was created in 1923 under the leadership of ICC’s first president, Étienne Clémentel.
The International Court of Arbitration is a leading institution for dispute resolution, specializing in the administration and supervision of international cases. The ICC Rules of Arbitration were last updated in 2017. They are available in English, German, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Czech and Slovak.
ICC arbitration exhibits certain distinctive features, including the scrutiny of draft awards by the ICC International Court of Arbitration.
