In 1980, its name was changed to the Arbitration Court attached to the Czechoslovak Chamber of Commerce and Industry and, finally on 1 January 1995, the court assumed its current name, i.e. the Arbitration Court attached to the Czech Chamber of Commerce and the Agricultural Chamber of the Czech Republic (“Arbitration Court”).

    Commentated and categorized .EU decisions, 2nd Edition

    After 4 years and more then 200 new decisions on the .EU, the CAC launched the 2nd Edition of the Overview of CAC Panel Views on Selected Questions of the Alternative Dispute Resolution for .EU Domain Name Disputes. CAC collaborated on the 2nd Edition with Ass. Proff. Lars Karnøe and his team from August 2016 and the official launch of the Overview 2.0 took place on 26/01/2017 in Prague. We believe that the Overview 2.0 will be helpful in identifying views expressed by CAC Panels and providing decisions which help to put the Panel views in context.

Arbitration court attached to the Czech Chamber of Commerce
and the Agricultural Chamber of the Czech Republic

Arbitration in the Czech Republic is governed by the Act. No. 216/1994 Coll., on Arbitration Proceedings and Enforcement of the Arbitral Awards, as amended, that came into force on 1 January 1995. Until the adoption of the above mentioned Act the Act. No. 93/1963 Coll. governed the arbitration proceedings, pursuant to which only international commercial disputes could be subject to arbitration. By adopting a new Act on arbitration the possibility to use these proceedings for deciding disputes outside the courts of law was much reinforced as the current rules of law enable use arbitration for any property disputes, except for the disputes relating to enforcement of decisions and “incidence disputes”, provided that both parties agree thereupon.
