What's the procedure?

This is how arbitration under the SCC Rules and the SCC Rules for Expedited Arbitrations is commenced.

Arbitration is commenced when the claimant files a request for arbitration with the SCC. At the same time as the request is filed, the claimant shall pay a registration fee.

The request for arbitration shall include:

a statement of the names, addresses, telephone and facsimile numbers and e-mail addresses of the parties and their counsel;

  1. a summary of the dispute;
  2. a preliminary statement of the relief sought by the claimant;
  3. a copy or description of the arbitration agreement or clause under which the dispute is to be settled;
  4. any comments on the number of arbitrators and the seat of arbitration;and
  5. if applicable, the name, address, telephone number, facsimile number and e-mail address of the arbitrator appointed by the claimant.

EU companies are requested to state their VAT No.

Electronic case management - submission of the request for arbitration

The request for arbitration and annexes should, to the extent possible, be sent to: arbitration@chamber.se

Please note that an application for the appointment of an Emergency Arbitrator shall be sent to e-mail:emergencyarbitrator@chamber.se

*Only if the request for arbitration cannot be sent by electronic means, paper copies should be sent to:

Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce
P.O. Box 16050
SE-103 21
Stockholm Sweden

Visiting and courier address: Brunnsgatan 2, 111 38 Stockholm

*Please note that if the scope of the request of arbitration and/or annexes is extensive, e.g. comprising ring binders and/or material presented on other media, making it unsuitable for electronic submission, the documentation should be provided to the SCC in as many copies as necessary to make it possible to send a copy each to the respondent(s), the SCC and the arbitrator(s).

Registration Fee

Under the SCC Rules the registration fee amounts to EUR 3000 (VAT not included). Registration fee (VAT included) is EUR 3750. Under the Rules for Expedited Arbitration ("Expedited Rules") the registration fee amounts to EUR 2500 (VAT not included). Registration fee (VAT included) is EUR 3125.

Companies with their seat outside of Sweden do not pay VAT on SCC registration fees.

Companies based in other EU countries than Sweden and not registered for VAT need to pay VAT on the registration fee since the principle of reverse charge does not apply.
