First introduced in 1997, DOCDEX is a rapid, cost-effective dispute resolution system intended to resolve disputes involving ICC rules on documentary credits (UCP 500). Expanded in 2002 to cover the ICC Uniform Rules for Collections (URC) and the Uniform Rules for Demand Guarantees (URDG), the process normally takes 30-60 days, with most cases resolved within 30 days.
DOCDEX has been used by practitioners worldwide who need quick decisions on outstanding conflicts to avoid lengthy and expensive court cases.
Now, for the first time, all of the DOCDEX decisions taken over a seven-year period have been collected in a single volume. This indexed volume of DOCDEX decisions gives the reader an insight into the thinking of ICC experts who must judge difficult cases involving ICC rules. As such, it’s an invaluable companion to the rules themselves.
