Our Dispute Board Regulations cover Dispute Review Boards (DRB), Dispute Adjudication Boards (DAB) and Combined Dispute Boards (CDB).
The DRBs provide early informal assistance to discrepancies or disputes and issue Recommendations related to them. Upon receiving a Recommendation, the parties may voluntarily abide by it.
The DABs provide early informal assistance in discrepancies or conflicts and issue Decisions related to them. A Decision is binding on the parties from the moment it is received and is understood to be part of the contract. The parties must comply without delay even if there is a manifestation of disagreement.
The CBDs provide early informal assistance in disputes or controversies and issue Recommendations or Decisions.
