ARTICLE 6 – FILING AND SENDING OF THE ACTS
1. The parties shall file briefs with the Secretariat as follows: one original for the Chamber of Arbitration and one for each party, plus as many copies as there are arbitrators. Any attached documents shall be filed in one copy for the Chamber of Arbitration, one copy for each party and as many copies as there are arbitrators.
2. The Secretariat shall send notices intended for them to parties, arbitrators, experts and third parties by registered mail, courier, e-mail or by any other appropriate means allowing for a formal proof of delivery.
1. Introduction and Due Process
The present article deals with the practicalities connected to the filing and exchanging of briefs in arbitration proceedings to be carried out under the CAM Rules.
The activities required under Article 6 are somehow reflective of the need to allow all parties in dispute with a fair chance to defend themselves. While there can be no doubts about the fact that due process is a fundamental element of any means of dispute resolution, it is often debated whether nature and characteristics of arbitration, and especially international arbitration,2 should lead to a qualified application of due process principles.
