Chinese European Arbitration Centre
A useful tool for dispute resolution in China related trade and investment matters, adapted to the needs of the international business and legal community worldwide.
The Chinese European Arbitration Centre (CEAC) offers services of an institutional arbitration centre tailor-made to the needs of trade with China based on the CEAC Arbitration Rules (CEAC Rules). CEAC follows a truly global approach granting equal power to Chinese, European and worldwide participants. By choosing this approach CEAC guaranties neutrality, in particular during the process for the choice of a neutral arbitrator.
During the preparation and negotiation of an international contract with a direct or indirect relation to China, the parties can refer to a CEAC Arbitration Clause to agree on a neutral arbitral institution and a neutral place of arbitration. Similarly, the CEAC Choice of Law Clause offers options to agree on common and/ or neutral substantive rules.
CEAC Rules offer a state-of-the-art and modern mechanism to settle China related disputes in an international spirit by institutional arbitration.
Parties are free to choose their arbitrators. However, CEAC provides a list of qualified arbitrators.
CEAC provides model clauses for international contracts: An arbitration clause and a choice of law clause.
In Hamburg und Norddeutschland gibt es mehrere "Schiedsszenen", die zum Teil nebeneinander her existieren. Die Hamburg Arbitration Drinks am 10. Juli 2017 bieten Schiedsrichterkollegen und Schiedsrechtsanwälten eine Möglichkeit zur Vernetzung bei guten Gesprächen über den Dächern von Hamburg.
On 18th April 2017, the 15th Hamburg Arbitration Talks dealing with the "Arbitration in China - Recent Developments", organized by the Hamburg Arbitration Circle e.V. (HAC) took place.
Dear Young CEAC members, we - Catrice, Jonas and York -, being the new Young CEAC Co-Chairs, are pleased to finally revive the activities of Young CEAC.
The trade between Chinese and European parties has enhanced during the last years, yet it remains subject to special challenges and risks. As a backbone to this trade, arbitration provides a functional instrument to resolve disputes and the necessary security to enforce mutual rights and duties.
The Chinese European Arbitration Centre (CEAC) is held by its sole shareholder, the Chinese European Legal Association (CELA).
CELA is a non-profit organisation and does not interfere with the arbitration procedures. CELA was founded in July 2008 to support and foster the exchange and interaction between China and Europe in the areas of law and legal culture. It is CELA's strong belief that a better knowledge of each other's legal and general culture as well as personal relationships are of paramount importance in creating fruitful and undisturbed trade relations.
