Part two refers to your appointments during the two-year period from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2020.

As noted above, please DO NOT fill the survey in for any matter in which your appointment was before 1 January 2019, even if the substantive work in the arbitration took place after that.

By the same token, please DO fill the survey in, even if the only thing that happened in the period was that you were appointed as arbitrator.

If you can’t remember the answer to any of the questions, you can select “Unsure/Not Applicable”.

You can close the browser at any time and return to complete Part 2 of the survey later.
