The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (“CPR”) has long championed its Rules for Non-Administered Arbitration (Rev. 2007) as a means of providing for a fair, expeditious, and economical arbitration process. Hallmark features of non-administered or ad hoc rules include management of the process by the Tribunal and counsel, without the need for the involvement of a separate administering entity. To aid participants in a non-administered process when necessary, CPR offers customized services, such as arbitrator selection and a challenge procedure. For a full menu of such services, please refer to CPR’s website, www.cpradr.org.
CPR maintains its commitment to non-administered processes. However, mindful of the benefits that an arbitral institution can provide in appropriate cases, CPR has promulgated a set of administered arbitration rules to increase parties’ range of options. The CPR Rules for Administered Arbitration (July 1, 2013) provide parties with the same well-designed procedures and high quality arbitrators as CPR’s non-administered option, while also allowing the parties to avail themselves of CPR’s quality staff and resources when an administered process is desired.
Mediation and Other ADR Procedures. The following Rules are intended to govern administered arbitration proceedings. However, parties also may wish to incorporate pre-arbitral negotiation or mediation phases in their contract provisions. Parties desiring to use such procedures should consult the CPR Mediation Procedure and CPR’s Dispute Resolution Clauses (available on CPR’s website at www.cpradr.org).
