Commercial Arbitration is a type of Alternation Dispute Resolution in many commercial disputes which can be used to replace the way of litigation in the court. In order to settle a dispute arising from trading transactions by commercial arbitration, the parties in dispute must enter into an arbitration agreement which could be set after or before the occurrence of the dispute. The arbitration agreement reflects the willingness of both parties to settle the case arising out of the business activities by arbitration instead of by litigation before the court.
There are two basic forms of commercial arbitration including ad-hoc arbitration and institutional arbitration. In particular:
(i) Ad-hoc arbitration is a type of commercial arbitration that is agreed to be established by both parties in order to solve the case and will cease to exist when the incident is resolved. The procedure of settling the dispute by ad-hoc arbitration is agreed upon by both parties.
(ii) Institutional arbitration is a type of dispute resolution by arbitral tribunal of an arbitration institution having a list of arbitrators. Those arbitrators shall practice under the charter of the institution. The procedure of settling the dispute by institutional arbitration is in accordance with the rules of arbitration institution.
