Arbitrations in London are conducted under the Arbitration Act 1996. The LMAA Terms are terms of procedure which are available to parties for incorporation into dispute resolution clauses in their maritime contracts. Where members of a tribunal accept their appointments on the LMAA Terms, those Terms then apply to and govern the procedure to be adopted in the arbitration reference. The Terms have been revised from time to time; the current version is the LMAA Terms 2021 available via the link below.
The LMAA also publishes its Intermediate Claims Procedure (ICP), and the Small Claims Procedure (SCP). These have been revised for 2021 and are available via the links below.
