CEPANI has a long standing tradition of entering into Collaboration Agreements with renowned and leading arbitration institutions around the world (see: These Agreements are primarily based on the promotion of all forms of alternative dispute resolution, exchange of information and the expression of mutual recognition and friendship.

On 8 March 2016 the Board of Directors of the CEPANI decided to also enter into Partnerships with specialized Service Providers.

As CEPANI is the gateway to the Belgian Arbitration community, several enterprises have shown an interest of accessing thereto.

CEPANI has decided in favor of such requests, whilst respecting the highest standards possible.

CEPANI, as an arbitration institution, considers the standards of independence, impartiality and integrity as paramount and crucial features for its proper functioning and the threshold of the trust of its users.

For that reason, Partners of CEPANI should be enterprises with the highest standards, immaculate reputation and leaders in their field.

Partners of CEPANI cannot be party to an arbitration proceeding administered by CEPANI in any way.

Affiliates or staff member of Partners of CEPANI cannot hold office in CEPANI governing bodies or be appointed or confirmed as arbitrator, mediator, adjudicator or expert.

Partnerships should foresee a longstanding relationship and can only be visualized in a modest and esthetic way, through the CEPANI-website, the CEPANI-Newsletter and during conferences whereby CEPANI or CEPANI40 is the leading organizer.
