ANTICIPATING ISSUES

DELOS PROMOTES LEGAL SECURITY AND THE PROPER PERFORMANCE OF CONTRACTS THROUGH THEIR REGISTRATION WITH DELOS

CONTRACT REGISTRATION

Delos offers parties the opportunity to register their contracts containing a Delos arbitration clause. Registration is free and can be done by e-mailing your contract to contract-registration@delosdr.org. Save in exceptional circumstances, registration must be done within 60 days of signature of the contract.

Upon registration, Delos provides the parties with a unique Contract Registration Number (CRN). Having a CRN gives parties a number of benefits:

  • parties can retrieve a copy of their contracts from Delos, in case they misplace them, for example if they are preparing for a due diligence;
  • access to a reduced fee schedule in case of arbitration;
  • underlines the binding nature of the contract, as a result of the formalism of the Delos CRN notification to the parties;
  • allows Delos to anticipate needs, for example by looking at the governing law of registered contracts. This in turn allows Delos to provide better dispute resolution services, for example by making sure that its list of arbitrators includes enough potential arbitrators with the relevant qualifications to ensure availability in case of dispute; and
  • allows Delos to address Notices of Arbitration rapidly, for example if they are filed after hours with missing or incomplete information that Delos can retrieve from the contract registration.

All commercial or contractual information provided to Delos remains strictly confidential and shall not be provided to any third party without prior written agreement.
