ICC seminar on resolving disputes in space and aeronautics industries

ICC will hold a seminar on resolving disputes in the space and aeronautics sectors. The conference Dispute Resolution in Aeronautics and Space will take place on 5 February under the auspices of the ICC International Court of Arbitration. It will address three main themes: risk management; the impact of financing on enforcement and repossession strategies; and the methods available for resolving disputes. The conference will identify the specific risks in the aeronautics and space industries, taking into consideration recent developments in this sector; notably the increase in air traffic, new types of material, more innovative technologies and the development of new airline companies. Given these risks, one session will also be devoted to the importance of insurance and re-insurance.

The conference will also delve into dispute resolution in the industry, covering issues such as litigation B2C, secrecy obligations and dual purpose technology, and their impact on dispute resolution proceedings. The range of procedures available to resolve disputes – such as state court procedures and international commercial arbitration – will be addressed.

The conference will be held at the ICC Secretariat in Paris and will be conducted in English and French. Simultaneous translation will be available. Space is limited, and a discount will be offered to members and non-members of ICC who enroll by 12 January.
