9 Chartered Institute of Arbitrators East Anglia Branch Summer Seminar 2012 Time Limited Arbitration Conclusions ICE rules and SCA procedure only ones with a virtually immovable end date but neither of these has proved popular. Try a new twist. Awards need not be final and binding Act allows this. Arbitration may be more expensive but a there is a lower possibility of mistakes by the tribunal, a safety valve if there are mistakes and a fixed date for the Award if an immovable end date. Parties and adjudicators have got used to working to deadlines. Time to have another look at arbitration and not just for large and complex disputes. Christopher Dancaster June 1st 2012
