International Commercial Disputes

International commercial disputes are administered by NZDRC's related registry service, the New Zealand International Arbitration Centre (NZIAC).

NZIAC provides an effective forum for the settlement of international trade, commerce, investment, and cross-border disputes in the Trans-Pacific region.

The object of NZIAC is to support and facilitate the growth and development of international dispute resolution in the region, and to promote New Zealand as a safe and neutral regional hub for international dispute resolution and seat for international arbitration. NZIAC offers fully administered dispute resolution processes, including arbitration, mediation, and arb-med, and maintains panels of arbitrators and mediators who are recognised and respected globally as leaders in international dispute resolution.
