  • Technical arbitration by the DKV

     
     
    Arbitration panel: The panel usually consists of three members. Each party to the dispute appoints an arbitrator from the official list, who together appoint an umpire. If they cannot agree on the umpire then the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce will do so. The panel of arbitrators may be increased to five before or even during the hearings at the request of any of the parties or the sitting arbitrators themselves. In this case the sitting arbitrators must agree on the additional members; if they cannot then again the Chamber will nominate them instead. Remember that arbitrators in a dispute are not partial to one or the other side – they are neutral members of the official arbitration board.
