An award in three months for urgent situations
For extreme emergencies, a fast-track arbitration can be implemented at the request of the parties. It is a very effective procedure, used to meet the firm’s urgent and specific needs without delay.
The arbitral tribunal organizes the fast-track arbitration and prescribes the time limits so as to allow an award to be delivered within 3 months.
In the same vein to ensure a fast procedure, CMAP has set up a Preconstituted Arbitration Tribunal, whose members and alternate members are known from the parties. Thus, the delays associated to the constitution of the arbitral tribunal are avoided. The arbitration proceedings can begin immediately. At the time the Centre is seized, the parties can indicate their wish to appointthe Preconstituted Arbitration Tribunal.
Independent, impartial and qualified arbitrators
The Center provides arbitrators with recognized morality and professional skills. CMAP’s arbitrators come from various professional backgrounds: legal business and financial practitioners, former judges, university professors, business executives, engineers, etc. Their solid training and a diverse experience ensures the quality of the arbitral proceedings.
Before being proposed to the Arbitration Committee to be appointed as an arbitrator, the arbitrator(s) must sign, for each arbitration case, a declaration of independence. The arbitrators are subject to an obligation of total confidentiality.
On demand, CMAP can suggest to the parties a shortlist of arbitrators.. CMAP may act as appointing authority during ad hoc arbitration procedures.
The CMAP’s appointing authority
If one or both parties wish, CMAP can act as appointing authority during ad hoc arbitration procedures. Depending on the circumstances, we appoint a co-arbitrator, a sole arbitrator or the chairman of the arbitral tribunal.

Cooperation for better performance
CMAP has forged solid bonds with other arbitration institutions and organizations in order to develop these conflict resolution methods. Among them:
Since 2006, CMAP and CEFAREA, French Reinsurance and Insurance Arbitration Center, have decided to combine their “know-how”.
With this partnership, CMAP can provide French and foreign CEFAREA members and companies its arbitration and mediation cases management capacities.
Thus, CEFAREA- CMAP common rules were created to meet the insurance and reinsurance sector’s specific needs.
CEFAREA and CMAP jointly selected arbitrators and mediators recognized for their skills in these fields.
The Federation of Arbitration Centers
The Federation of Arbitration Centers was created in 2012. It is a non-profit organization. Its aim is to develop and to promote institutional arbitration.

Paris, Home of Arbitration
Since its inception in March 2009, Paris, The Home of International Arbitration organizes actions to promote the capital’s role as one of the most important centers of international arbitration. The CMAP is a member of this non-profit organization. We actively work along side, and even more since the entry into force of the Decree of the 13th of January 2011 concerning the arbitration reform. This Decree is in line with the French conception of arbitration. It strongly supports this method related to conflict resolution, especially when international matters are concerned.
