Nordic Offshore & Maritime Arbitration Association

Facilitating international arbitration in the Nordic countries

WHY

The Nordic Offshore and Maritime Arbitration Association was established 28 November 2017 on the initiative of the Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish Maritime Law Associations. The Nordic countries have long traditions for settling disputes within the maritime- and offshore industry by arbitration. Traditionally, ad hoc arbitration has been dominant in the Nordics, particularly in Norway and Denmark, while Sweden and Finland have stronger traditions for institutional arbitration.

 

In a globalized field as the shipping- and offshore, the Nordic industry and the Nordic legal environment recognize that it will be useful to develop an even more common approach to Nordic arbitration. In this context, the Maritime Law Associations together with the industry has developed the Rules and Best Practice of the Nordic Offshore and Maritime Arbitration Association, in order to promote transparent and cost-efficient arbitrations.

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS of Nordic Arbitration is focusing on maintaining and develop the Association's Rules and Best Practice.

There are some details, misspelling of words etc. in Best Practise that will be corrected.
The Association receives comments and questions of the interpreting of  some of the clauses, such as if Best Practice reflect the Nordic tradition of the duty to disclose documents. The Board of Directors will look into such items, and suggest changes if appropriate.

Date: 30.10.2018

The new version of the Plan now includes an arbitration clause referring disputes to arbitration under NOMA Rules (Nordic Offshore & Maritime Arbitration Association). This is optional for a Nordic claims leader but the default  for a non-Nordic claims leader. This may come as a surprise to some.

NORDIC OFFSHORE AND MARITIME ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION: COULD THE NORDIC MARITIME MODEL ATTRACT A WIDER AUDIENCE?

Date: 26.03.2018

NOMA began operations early this year, and its rules and best practice suggest a more pragmatic, quicker and cheaper service than traditional institutions.

NOMA was established as an initiative of the Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish Maritime Law Associations, with support from law firms and academics in the industry. It promotes the use of arbitration to resolve disputes and is primarily aimed at the shipping sector where at least one party is Nordic. However, the question arises whether it could attract a wider audience, particularly after Brexit. Nothing prevents non-Nordic parties or non-shipping disputes to be heard before the association.

NORDISK VOLDGIFTSINSTITUT SAT I SØEN

Date: 29.11.2017

Danske Rederier glæder sig over, at endnu et redskab til at skabe aktivitet og know-how i Det Blå Danmark ser dagens lys. En ny nordisk voldgift til at løse maritime og offshore tvister er nemlig en realitet. I går var en mærkedag for fælles nordisk samarbejde inden for shipping. Danske kræfter har arbejdet på etableringen af en nordisk voldgift i et stykke tid, og nu bærer arbejdet frugt. Reglerne er på plads, og der er nu nordisk enighed om at etablere en forening i Norge som den formelle ramme for instituttet. Meningen er så, at denne forening skal stiftes med hvert af de nordiske lande som deltager. I Danmark er den danske søretsforening medstifter for at undgå unødig bureaukrati.
