A Key Partnership for the Publication of AAA-ICDR Arbitral Awards

The International Centre for Dispute Resolution® (ICDR®), the international division of the American Arbitration Association® (AAA®), and Jus Mundi have united to make non-confidential ICDR international arbitration awards freely available to the global legal and business community.

Why This Partnership?

As the world’s leading source of alternative dispute resolution education, the ICDR-AAA provides arbitrators, advocates, counsel, and other professionals with a wide spectrum of learnings, training events, and resources. These international arbitration awards will be an important element for the study and advancement of global conflict management across numerous business sectors and industries.

Article 40 of the ICDR’s International Arbitration Rules provides the ICDR with the ability to make an award public only with the consent of all parties or if they have become public in the course of enforcement or otherwise. The AAA-ICDR has partnered with Jus Mundi to provide full public access to all publishable ICDR international arbitration awards and related documents made as of June 25, 2022.

The ICDR believes the international legal and business community will benefit substantially from the availability of select international arbitration awards. These ICDR awards have the potential to contribute to the continued development of international arbitration globally. With the proper safeguards in place as provided for in the ICDR’s International Arbitration Rules, awards will be publicly available where all parties consent, if they have otherwise become public, or if no objections are received to the publication of redacted awards within six months of the award.
Eric P. Tuchmann - Senior Vice-President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary of the AAA-ICDR
The AAA-ICDR’s administrative system is based on the premise that global expertise matters for today’s complex commercial disputes. The ICDR’s international panel of arbitrators render important reasoned awards where the governing law is applied and these cases are resolved. The partnership with Jus Mundi will provide the ICDR with an important platform to feature its redacted international arbitration awards and will have the added value of their highlighting important searchable points of data from these awards, shedding light on the efficiency, due process, and justice of the dispute resolution process.
Luis M. Martinez - Vice-President of the AAA-ICDR
Jus Mundi is proud to be able to contribute, alongside the ICDR-AAA, to a greater accessibility of international arbitral awards. The publication of these redacted awards will allow a better understanding and predictability of international arbitration for the parties and the community. Ultimately, it is the rule of law as a whole that will be strengthened.
Jean-Rémi de Maistre - CEO & Co-founder of Jus Mundi

how does it work ?

Parties and the award

Parties do not object to the publication of the award or the ICDR international award becomes public during the course of enforcement or otherwise. The ICDR provides the parties with an opportunity to object to the publication of awards in writing within six months from the date of the award.

Personal data is pseudonymized or anonymized

Any personal data in the awards and related documents is redacted via pseudonymization or anonymization where appropriate. This ensures that only necessary and pre-approved details and names are published in the public domain. The name and details of arbitrators and the name and cities of parties’ law firms are not redacted.

ICDR endorses the digital version of the award

Following pseudonymization or anonymization, Jus Mundi converts the award or related document into a digital document which is endorsed by the ICDR.

Publication of the award on Jus Mundi

With final checks and approval from the ICDR, Jus Mundi publishes the ICDR award or related ICDR document freely to the public on its website. This information is then searchable through Jus Mundi’s multilingual search engine and its other tools.
