The ICC launched its new Expertise Rules (applicable as from 1 February 2015), which set out the parameters for expert services under the  administration of the ICC International Centre for Expertise, replacing the 2003 version.

The new Expertise Rules, initially available in English, French and Spanish, make clear how parties  may rely on experts and neutrals to help resolve cross-border disputes. Three sets of rules are  applicable, each one covering different areas of ICC dispute resolution services: the Proposal of  Experts and Neutrals, the Appointment of Experts and Neutrals and, the Administration of Expertise  Proceedings.

The Expertise Rules are available to various industries, such as construction, finance and  information technology, among others, and may be applied while arbitration or court proceedings are  still pending.
