  • Appointment of arbitrators

    Chapter 3 - Cotton marketing - Arbitration 

    When a valid request for arbitration has been received, ICA will direct the respondent to appoint its arbitrator within a specific time frame. Should this not be done, ICA will make the appointment.

    Arbitrators must be members of ICA at the time of appointment.

    ICA appoints a third arbitrator to act as chairperson, who will consult with the other tribunal members and agree and issue directions to both the parties. Directions are usually produced in a standard format. They include such items as timelines for documentary submissions and general comments on proceedings.
