arbitration

Related Terms
Settlement of a dispute (whether of fact, law, or procedure) between parties to a contract by a neutral third party (the arbitrator) without resorting to court action. Arbitration is usually voluntary but sometimes it is required by law. If both sides agree to be bound by the arbitrator's decision (the 'award') it becomes a binding arbitration. The exact procedure to be followed (if not included in the contract under dispute) is governed usually by a country's arbitration laws, or by the arbitration rules prescribed by the International Chamber Of Commerce (ICC).
