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.
