Since 1993, parties have brought 57 investment arbitrations to the SCC. The SCC has one of the largest institutional investment arbitration caseloads, second only to ICSID.
SCC investment treaty arbitration in 2012
The underlying instrument relied upon by the parties involved in investment arbitrations varies. In 42 of the 57 investment arbitrations brought before the SCC, parties relied upon Bilateral Investment Treaties (BIT), in 9 arbitrations parties brought their disputes based on alleged violations of the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) and 6 investment arbitrations have been based on investment agreements.
The SCC administers investment disputes and it often also functions as appointing authority under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules. During 2013 the SCC is expected to expand its administrative services under UNCITRAL Rules.
