About the Code of Procedure
The FORUM Code of Procedure has been the guiding rule set for thousands of commercial and consumer disputes since 1986. Its precise rules govern all aspects of the arbitration process, from the initial case filing to the arbitrator’s decision. The Code of Procedure ensures all parties a fair, unbiased dispute resolution process. It empowers arbitrators to clearly and confidently render decisions that are based on applicable law.
