In March 1995 it was officially announced that the GCC Commercial Arbitration Centre had become fully functional and ready to fulfill its duties. The panel of arbitrators at the Centre consists of around 370 arbitrators who have been nominated by all Chambers of Commerce & Industry in the GCC States.
The most important duty of the Centre is to fill the vacuum resulting from the lack of a regional specialized mechanism capable of providing speedy and effective means of dispute resolution. It also organizes, on a regular basis, regional seminars and workshops on international trade practices and dispute resolution.
