This note reflects the rules applicable on December 1, 2014. CPR is one of the leading arbitration institutions in the United States (see ICDR, JAMS and CPR International Arbitration Rules Comparison Chart (us.practicallaw.com/3-595-5265). It provides rules and administrative services for arbitration, mediation and other dispute resolution procedures. This note provides a step-by-step guide to CPR arbitration for managed arbitration of international disputes effective December 1, 2014 (the rules).

Take stock of the timetable of the proceedings, either in accordance with the internal regulations (in particular, densern 3 and 15.8) or as agreed by the parties, and ensure that the parties meet the deadlines.

(For more information on multi-tiered clauses, see Practical Mentions, Hybrid, Multi-Animals and Carve-out Dispute Resolutions (us.practicallaw.com/9-384-8595).)

B experience, location and hourly rate). Unless the parties agree otherwise, the administrative rules and any changes subsequently adopted by the RPC apply in the form in force at the time of arbitration. Where the parties have provided for cPR arbitration proceedings without specifying unsup managed or managed rules, the CPR International Administered Arbitration Rules for International Disputes applies to any international arbitration agreement of December 1, 2014 or later, if the parties reside in different countries or if the contract involves assets or performance appeals in a country other than the country of residence of the parties. The Administered Rules regulate the arbitration procedure, except in the case of opposition to a mandatory provision of the applicable arbitration right. On July 1, 2013, CPR issued its first rules on managed arbitration procedures for internal litigation in the United States. Although CPR has in the past performed many functions of managed arbitration on a pay-per-view basis, the RPC`s arbitration rules offered only one unmanaged option before July 2013.
