  • Unbiased and self-reliant. The Center has skilled public officials in the development of arbitration proceedings, as well as a list of specialized arbitrators whose duty is to declare any conflict when accepting their position. Additionally there is a "former phase" designed to encourage negotiation and reconciliation between the parties in order to cut down costs in reaching a solution of the conflict.

From more than 1,200 managed cases by the Center only three arbitration awards have been set aside by the Judiciary Power, this confirms the reliability and soundness in the settlement reached by the arbitrators, aside from the fact that degree of the voluntary fulfillment of the settlement reached by the arbitrators is extremely high

[edit] Private Justice: A modern alternative

Arbitration is an alternative to the Judiciary power. It is a private mean to resolve disputes where a third party and a specialist in the matter, either as an individual or in joint effort (as a sole arbitrator or in an arbitration court) resolves a dispute through an arbitral award which is definite and final.

The Arbitration Center of the Lima Chamber of Commerce has a modern regulation which provides a quick and efficient mean to conduct all arbitration proceedings. The new Arbitration Regulations are in effect since January 1st 2007, they are formed by the Center's By-Laws, the Ethics Code, the arbitration proceeding regulation, and the Tariffs Regulation. This regulating body offers the center's users the adequate guaranty for a quick, clear, efficient, and predictable process.
