The Madrid International Arbitration Center – Ibero-American Arbitration Center is an innovative arbitral institution that offers an independent, transparent and efficient service for the resolution of international disputes.

In addition to adhering to the highest international ethical standards, CIAM-CIAR’s guiding principles are: excellence in processes, customer service and sustainability.

CIAM-CIAR started operations in 2020 with the accumulated experience of its founding Courts: the Madrid Court of Arbitration(CAM), the Spanish Court of Arbitration (CEA) and the Civil and Commercial Arbitration Court (CIMA) with the Madrid Bar Association (ICAM) as a strategic partner.

Among CIAM-CIAR’s main innovations is the work carried out by its Commissions made up of professionals of recognized prestige in the arbitration community and representing more than twenty different nationalities. The members of the commissions are external, totally independent of CIAM-CIAR and their position is not remunerated.

The Center acts independently of its founding Courts, and in accordance with its own Bylaws and its Arbitration Rules and internal regulations, and has the following bodies for the development of its activity:
