This chapter describes the framework for parties to appoint, remunerate, challenge, and replace arbitrators under the HKIAC Rules. Disputes submitted to HKIAC arbitration are generally determined by an arbitral tribunal of one or three arbitrators. The parties may agree on the number of arbitrators either before or after the dispute has arisen. The appointment procedures contain detailed provisions on the constitution of these one-member or three-member tribunals in cases involving two or more parties. In addition, the arbitrator fee mechanism offers parties a choice to remunerate the arbitral tribunal by reference to hourly rates or the sum in dispute. The challenge and replacement procedure prescribes specific timelines and grounds for a party to apply to remove an arbitrator.
