CIArb is looking to expand the list of eligible arbitrators on the Business Arbitration Scheme (BAS). The scheme is operated by CIArb’s Dispute Appointment Service (DAS) and provides parties with a final, legally binding decision on their dispute in less than 90 days from the appointment of the arbitrator. Further information about the scheme can be found in the attached BAS Brochure.
The scheme was set up as a low cost arbitration scheme designed to help CIArb Fellows who had been ‘stranded’ to gain the decision-making experience to assist them for onward progression to Chartered Arbitrator status.
All Fellows of CIArb are eligible for panel membership on this scheme. In order to help achieve the objective, suitable Fellows, (excluding those already holding Chartered status), will be admitted to the BAS Panel. Chartered Arbitrators are currently eligible for the appointments via the Presidential Panel.
CIArb is making a further call to the Branch membership holding Fellowship grade to join the panel of Arbitrators on the BAS scheme. It is a unique opportunity to get the first appointment and obtain invaluable practical experience of sitting as an arbitrator.
If you are interested in joining, please register your interest via email with the Dispute Appointment Service (DAS) team, attaching your CV with relevant background and specialisation. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please feel free to contact the DAS team (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
