A single arbitrator is usually appointed by agreement, or by an independent third party. Where three arbitrators are used, it is customary for each party to appoint one arbitrator and for the chairman to be appointed either by agreement between the party-appointed arbitrators or by an independent third party. For arbitrations in Hong Kong, where the parties are unable to agree on the appointment of an arbitrator, either party may request the HKIAC to make the appointment.
Appointment of Arbitrators
The parties may, in their arbitration agreement, provide certain criteria for arbitrators to be appointed (as to nationality, professional background etc). The HKIAC Online Searchable Database in the “Panel of Arbitrators” and “List of Arbitrators” aim to enhance the functionality and navigability for our users to search for appropriate arbitrators for their matters.

Challenges & Complaints against Arbitrators
Arbitrators are required to be independent. An arbitrator can be challenged if justifiable doubt exists as to the arbitrator’s neutrality or independence.
