Are parties to a dispute free to appoint arbitrators or must an arbitrator be appointed by NCIA?
Under the NCIA Rules parties are free to nominate arbitrators from the NCIA list of arbitrators or outside of the NCIA list of arbitrators. However NCIA arbitrations are institute administered hence all appointments of arbitrators are done by the NCIA. Any appointment of an arbitrator by the parties is deemed to be a nomination.
The NCIA list of accredited arbitrators will be available on the official web-site of NCIA www.ncia.or.ke
