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, which also constitutes the Statement of Claim, shall include:

  1. The names, addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of the parties and their counsel,
  2. The specific relief sought, including an estimate of the monetary value of the claims,
  3. The factual and legal basis the Claimant relies on,
  4. Any evidence the Claimant relies on,
  5. A copy or description of the arbitration agreement or clause under which the dispute is to be settled,
  6. Where claims are made under more than one arbitration agreement, an indication of the arbitration agreement under which each claim is made; and
  7. Comments on the seat of the arbitration.

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

*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

*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).
