  • The partnership will increase the availability of select ICDR international arbitration awards, in compliance with the ICDR’s International Arbitration Rules.

👉 How does the partnership between ICDR & Jus Mundi 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.

👉 Are any of these materials supposed to be confidential?

  • 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.

  • 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.
