On 5 January 2016, the International Chamber of Commerce International Court of Arbitration (ICC) announced two decisions aimed at enhancing the efficiency and transparency of its arbitration proceedings:

1. Court to publish certain details of arbitrators sitting in ICC cases. These details will be posted on the Court’s website and will comprise the names of arbitrators, their nationality, whether they were appointed by the parties of the ICC, and which arbitrator was appointed as the tribunal chairperson.
