The Arbitration Chamber of Paris is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide companies of all sizes the means to resolve disputes through arbitration or conciliation. Founded in 1926 as a union of trade associations, it is the oldest arbitration center in France. It has already settled more than 30,000 disputes. Over 60 groups, representing various branches of French commerce and industry, are members of the Chamber.
The Chamber deals with disputes arising in multiple areas of industry and commerce, including distribution and trade, industrial projects, transportation operations, investments, licenses of registered trademarks and franchising contracts. It organizes arbitration in accordance with the French decrees of May 14, 1980 and May 12, 1981. The Chamber offers several proceedings to be followed, including “Institutional Proceedings”, “Associated Proceedings” and “External Proceedings”. The Institutional Proceedings are administered under the standard Rules of the Arbitration Chamber of Paris, Mediation-Conciliation Rules of Procedure, CAP-ACAREF Arbitration Rules applying primarily to financial disputes, or FFF Arbitration Rules applying to franchising disputes. The Associated Proceedings are administered under various sets of Rules specific to particular areas of industry or economy. The External Proceedings include arbitrations under UNCITRAL Rules and ad hoc arbitrations administered by arbitrators with the support of the Chamber’s services and experience but in a non-institutional way.
