Arbitrator Appointment Committee
The Arbitrator Appointment Committee (the “Appointment Committee”), assisted by the General Secretariat, confirms the prospective arbitrators proposed by the parties and appoints arbitrators in the absence of agreement between the parties, in accordance with the MIAC Arbitration Rules and the Rules on Appointment and Confirmation of Arbitrators.
The Appointment Committee is chaired by the Center’s Chairperson and comprises four external members appointed by the Council for a two-year term. These external members are experienced legal professionals with recognized standing in the international legal arena. They are fully independent from MIAC and receive no remuneration – that is, their position is unpaid.
During their term, Appointment Committee members are not nominated or appointed as arbitrators by the Center. The same applies where MIAC acts in the capacity of Nominating Authority. However, they may be appointed as arbitrators by the parties.
