Arbitration in Chile is primarily governed by the Organic Code of Courts (“OCC”), the Code of Civil Procedure (“CCP”) and Law 19.971 on International Commercial Arbitration (the “ICA Law”). Chile is also a signatory to the New York Convention, the Panama Convention and the ICSID Convention. Additionally, most of the free trade agreements as well as the BITs that Chile has entered into provide for specific arbitration mechanisms to settle disputes arising from their application.
