The Arbitration Institute was established in 1911. Since 1919 it has operated in connection with the Finland Chamber of Commerce in Helsinki.

The Institute does not itself resolve disputes. Instead, it administers the settlement of disputes in domestic and international arbitrations under the Arbitration Rules of the Finland Chamber of Commerce (the ”Rules”) and the Rules for Expedited Arbitration of the Finland Chamber of Commerce (the ”Expedited Rules”). In addition, the Institute may be designated as appointing authority without subjecting the arbitration to the provisions of the Rules or the Expedited Rules.

The Institute may also appoint conciliators in relation to disputes arisen in the conduct of business, provided that the parties agree to this.
