The Dispute

What is the nature of your claim?
A claim may be for an arbitrator to determine whether an amount of money is payable (a monetary claim), and/or may require an arbitrator to determine the rights and obligations as between the parties (a declaratory relief claim).
Field is required!
Please enter the amount in dispute (inclusive of GST, value added tax, or any other similar tax which might apply). In calculating the amount in dispute, interest will not be taken into account unless the interest claimed by a Party exceeds the aggregate principal amount, in which case enter the value of the interest claim alone.

Agreement to Arbitrate

Before proceeding, the parties will need to agree to arbitrate with NZDRC. If the contract under which the dispute has arisen does not contain an arbitration clause stating that the parties agree that any dispute be arbitrated, the parties can sign the appropriate NZDRC Arbitration Agreement. There are four options to choose from depending on whether the parties require a sole arbitrator or 3-person arbitral tribunal, and whether they wish to agree on the arbitrator or require NZDRC to make the appointment.

Once you have completed the agreement to arbitrate, please return to complete this application form.
Have the parties agreed to arbitrate?
The agreement to arbitrate may exist by way of an express agreement to arbitrate or through an existing contract between the parties that contains an arbitration clause
