Det 2012 ICC emergency arbitrator rules extend the advantages of arbitration to parties who are in urgent need of interim measures before an arbitral tribunal has been constituted. Før, parties had to seek such measures from State courts, hvilket ikke altid var muligt eller ønsket.
An application for Emergency Measures can be filed prior to the Request for Arbitration under the ICC Rules of Arbitration, but the Request should be filed within 10 days of the application. En særlig e-mailadresse is dedicated to this application to ensure the immediate notification of the President of the ICC court of Arbitration, who will decide whether to allow the application in one or two days. I særdeleshed, the President needs to verify whether the parties to the Application are signatories or successors to signatories of the relevant arbitration agreement. Et moderselskab, der ikke har underskrevet af aftalen er udelukket fra denne fremgangsmåde. Arbitration agreements based on an investment treaties are also excluded. Denne streng anvendelse er at undgå kompetencestridigheder, der ville bremse nødprocedure og besejre sit formål.
The place of this procedure should be the same as the place of arbitration agreed by parties. When this is not apparent, Det er formanden, der fastsætter sædet. Førstnævnte afgør også udnævnelsen af den givne nødsituation voldgiftsmand. In this proceeding, the nationality of the arbitrator is not an issue. Emergency voldgiftsmand bør udstede sin ordre indenfor 15 dage efter modtagelsen af filen.
Because of the inherently urgent nature of this procedure, voldgiftsmanden kompetence kan have forrang for parternes tidligere konsensus. I teorien, Det lader til, at cool-down periode i voldgiftsaftaler kan ignoreres, and a contractual clause stipulating that the parties accepted the courts for the purpose of provisional and conservatory measures should not affect the emergency arbitrator’s jurisdiction.
