If parties are not able to fix the time of their procedure the Standard Dispute Rules give 15 working days to each party to respond to the other.

Normal times

  • conciliation : 1 month
  • mini-arbitration : 1 month
  • expertise & mediation : by agreement between parties
  • classic arbitration in the first instance : 2 to 6 months
  • classic arbitration in appeal : 6 months

Either party can request reduction or extension of times by means of a compelling letter.
