The object of the Danish Institute of Arbitration is to promote arbitration in accordance with the Rules of Arbitration Procedure laid down by its Council through arbitral tribunals appointed by the Danish Institute of Arbitration on a case-by-case basis. The Rules of Arbitration Procedure were most recently changed as of 1 May 2013.

The Danish Institute of Arbitration also offers mediation in accordance with the Rules of Procedure for Mediation laid down by the Council in 2015.

The Statutes and the various rules of procedure are available on this website. The Statutes exist in Danish, English. The Rules are available in Danish, English, German, French, Chinese and Russian. The website also contains recommendations regarding the wording of arbitration and mediation clauses as well as a calculator of arbitrator and mediator fees.

There are no limitations in the range of subjects for which the Danish Institute of Arbitration appoints arbitral tribunals.

The Danish Institute of Arbitration is governed by a Council the members of which are appointed by a number of supporting organisations, for instance the Danish Shipowners' Association. The administration and day-to-day business of the Danish Institute of Arbitration are carried out by a Secretariat, which also handles the administration of cases until an arbitral tribunal has been appointed.
