With the aid of the Cost Calculator, parties may calculate the estimated costs of a DIS Arbitration.

  • the estimated arbitrators’ fees pursuant to Article 32 (i) of the 2018 DIS Arbitration Rules and Paragraph 2 of the Schedule of Costs (without VAT pursuant to Paragraph 6.1 of the Schedule of Costs) and
  • the estimated Administrative Fees of DIS pursuant to Article 32 (iv) of the 2018 DIS Arbitration Rules and Paragraph 3 of the Schedule of Costs (without VAT pursuant to Paragraph 6.3 of the Schedule of Costs).
  • All values are calculated in EUR.

  • the arbitrators expenses as stipulated in Article 32 (i) of the 2018 DIS Arbitration Rules and Paragraph 5 of the Schedule of Costs,
  • the fees and expenses of any expert appointed by the arbitral tribunal as stipulated in Article 32 (ii) of the 2018 DIS Arbitration Rules,

  • In order to calculate the estimated costs of a DIS Arbitration, please enter the amount in dispute of any claims contained in the Request for Arbitration or any counterclaim and/or Request against an Additional Party.
  • Then enter the amount of parties involved in the arbitration: if there are more than two parties to the arbitration, the Cost Calculator only shows the total result of the arbitrators’ fees as well as the Administrative Fees of the DIS, without differentiating between the basic fees pursuant to Paragraphs 2.1 and 3.1 respectively Paragraphs 2.2 and 3.2 of the Schedule of Costs and the increase for additional parties pursuant to Paragraphs 2.4 and 3.4 of the Schedule of Costs.
  • Please enter the amount of arbitrators involved (Three-Member Arbitral Tribunal or Sole Arbitrator).
  • Specify whether it is an arbitration proceeding governed by the rules of a Chamber of Commerce referring to DIS Arbitration Rules (“IHK”).
  • The calculation is carried out automatically when the required information (at least the amount in dispute of the Request of Arbitration and the number of parties) is entered.

  • For proceedings commenced as of  1 July 2021, the following Cost Calculator is applicable.

  • For proceedings commenced between 1 March 2016 and 28 February 2018, the following Cost Calculator is applicable.
