The ICC International Centre for Expertise confirms or appoints experts who make independent assessments on any subject relevant to business transactions, including new gTLD.
The Centre may be called upon for any or all of the following services: Proposal of experts, Appointment of experts, or Administration of expertise proceedings.
Expert advice in settling business disputes is more than ever in demand with the advance of technology and the global economy.
Founded more than 25 years ago, the ICC International Centre for Expertise has built up unique access to experts in every conceivable subject relevant to business operations. It casts its net wide to find the expert most likely to propose the best solution.
Ability to deliver the right expert is vital. Equally important are ICC's Rules for Expertise, to which parties may refer in their contracts or at a later stage in their relationship. The Rules, updated for 2003, provide the basis for ICC expertise.
Areas of expertise available through the centre are as diverse as business itself. For example, experts may have to determine the quality of concrete used in a dam, the efficiency of waste disposal systems, or the adequacy of electric wiring in a new building. They may have to estimate costs or compare tenders. The possibilities are endless.
The members of the Standing Committee are appointed for a three-year term.
The membership for 2011-2013 is as follows:
- Nicolas Gould (United Kingdom) - Chairman
- Pablo Bernad Ramoneda (Spain) – Vice Chairman
- Christine Guerrier (France)
- Aisha Nadar (Egypt/US)
- James Nicholson (United Kingdom)
- Mladen Vukmir (Croatia)
