Join us online on Thursday, 19 January 2023 at 14:00 (CET) for the launch of the Centenary of the ICC International Court of Arbitration.



The virtual launch marks the beginning of our year-long programme commemorating 100 years from the day when the ICC Court was established. Showcasing ICC’s landmark Declaration on the next century of disputes, the broadcast will feature ICC Secretary General John WH Denton AO, ICC Court President Claudia Salomon and ICC Court Secretary General Alexander G. Fessas.
Bringing together the ICC community, including arbitration and ADR practitioners from around the world, the virtual launch will also present our Centenary programme, branding, and website page.
19 January 2023 is a milestone date in the history of the ICC Court and we are excited to share the start of our Centenary with you.
We look forward to seeing you.

 Urs Weber neu     Simon Gabriel


Urs Weber-Stecher will resign as President of the ICC Swiss Commission on Arbitration and ADR at the end of February 2023.

ICC Switzerland is very grateful to Urs for his excellent and tireless work for ICC arbitration in Switzerland and the liaison with the ICC Secretariat in Paris in connection with the nomination of Swiss arbitrators. Thanks to Urs, the Swiss Commission changed its organizational structure in March 2019 and has since fully complied with the requirements of the Secretariat of the ICC Court. ICC Switzerland has always appreciated his pragmatic approach and in general the very good and pleasant cooperation with Urs. We are therefore glad that we will not lose him completely, as he will continue to participate as an ordinary member of the Commission. 


Following the proposal of the Swiss Arbitration Nomination Committee, the Board of ICC Switzerland has elected Simon Gabriel as Urs' successor. He will take office on 1 March 2023. We are convinced that our Commission will have an excellent President in Simon, who has been an active member of our Commission for many years and has always been in good contact with the Secretariat in Paris.


The Swiss Commission of Arbitration and ADR of ICC is the main body of ICC Switzerland responsible for the coordination of Swiss contributions to the ICC Dispute Resolution activities, mainly in the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR in Paris, for proposals for nominations of arbitrators to the ICC Court as well as for the promotion of ICC Dispute Resolution Services in Switzerland.

Vincent Subilia has been re-elected member of the General Council of the World Chambers Federation for a new three-year term.


ICC Chamber members from more than 100 countries were called to vote last November and elect their twenty preferred chamber leaders from forty-six candidates, to serve on the WCF General Council 2023-2025.  The World Chambers Federation (WCF) of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has announced the results of elections for its General Council. Vincent Subilia, Director general of the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services, has been re-elected.


In the closing plenary of #COP27, ICC delivered a statement on behalf of business and industry NGOs on the outcome of the two-week negotiations. Efforts have been made to keep 1.5 alive, but much more could have been done. Business remains squarely behind the #ParisAgreement.
