The cost controlled arbitration rules 'the Rules', are designed for use in smaller claims in which the issues are comparatively simple and there is a risk that costs may outweigh the amount at stake.
If both parties agree to use the Rules, they must ensure that the arbitrator appointed to hear the case agrees to this.
If you wish to apply for the appointment of an Arbitrator under these rules, please complete and return the Cost Controlled Arbitration Application Form with the appropriate fee.
A copy of the Rules can be found in the 'Resources' section to the right.
For more complex or higher value cases, the parties should consider using the CIArb Arbitration Rules 2015.
