International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) International Court of Arbitration

Arbitral institution established in 1923 as part of the ICC and headquartered in Paris. In spite of its name, the Court does not have any jurisdictional power; its mandate is to supervise international dispute resolution by the application of the ICC’s Rules of Arbitration. It intervenes, among other things, to appoint the arbitrators and confirm those nominated by the parties, as well as to scrutinise draft awards before their final issuance by the arbitrators.
