ACICA has developed a Guidance Note for Online Arbitration as a resource for parties conducting arbitration using an online platform.

The ACICA Guidance Notice, which takes the form of a checklist of relevant considerations, aims to raise a range of matters that need to be addressed in advance of an online arbitration where numerous parties are participating from different physical locations.

The ACICA Guidance Note is the latest addition to ACICA’s Practice & Procedures tool kit, which also contains quick links to resources such as ACICA model clauses, sample submissions agreements, sample Notice of Arbitration and Answer to Notice of Arbitration, Guidelines on the use of Tribunal Secretaries and a draft procedural order for the use of online dispute resolution technologies.
