Introductory Note

The ICSID Institution Rules were adopted by the Administrative Council of the Centre pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the ICSID Convention.

The ICSID Institution Rules apply from the filing of a Request for arbitration or conciliation under the ICSID Convention to the date of registration or refusal to register. If a Request is registered, the ICSID Arbitration or Conciliation Rules apply to the subsequent procedure. The ICSID Institution Rules do not apply to the initiation of post-Award remedy proceedings, or to proceedings pursuant to the ICSID Additional Facility Rules, the ICSID Fact-Finding Rules or the ICSID Mediation Rules.
