About the company

The Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) has developed into one of the world’s leading forums for dispute resolution.

The SCC was established in 1917 and is part of, but independent from, the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce. The SCC consists of a Board and a Secretariat and provides efficient dispute resolution services for both Swedish and international parties.

The SCC was recognized in the 1970's by the United States and the Soviet Union as a neutral centre for the resolution of East West trade disputes. Also China recognized the SCC as a forum for resolving international disputes around the same time. The SCC has since expanded its services in international commercial arbitration and emerged as one of the most important and frequently used arbitration institutions worldwide.

In recent years the number of cases filed with the SCC – both domestic and international – has increased considerably. The high number of international cases - nearly 50% - clearly evidence the strong position of the SCC as a preferred venue for dispute resolution among the international business community. Every year parties from as many as 30-40 countries use the services of the SCC.

Sweden and the SCC also play a unique role in the international system developed for bilateral and multilateral investment protection worldwide. In at least 120 of the current bilateral investment treaties (BITs) Sweden or the SCC is cited as the forum for resolving disputes between investors and the state. Today, the SCC is the world’s second largest institution for investment disputes.

-Årligen arrangerar vi runt 200 evenemang – allt från nätverksträffar, seminarier och frukostmöten till stora evenemang som Tulldagen, Distinget och World Trade Day.

-Stockholms Handelskammare är en partipolitiskt obunden medlemsorganisation med cirka 2 000 medlemsföretag i Stockholms och Uppsala län.

-Vår medelålder är 40 år men vi har kollegor från 20 års ålder till närmare 65 vilket vi tycker är både roligt och viktigt.

-Under 2020 gav Stockholms Handelskammares avdelning inom Internationell Handel och Affärstjänster ut 30662 stycken intyg och under 2019 562 ATA-carneter till 888 kunder.

-Stockholms Handelskammare har en unik kunskapsmångfald med jurister, statsvetare, marknadsförare, företagsekonomer, beteendevetare, nationalekonomer, projektledare, affärsutvecklare, experter inom internationell handel etc. Det är en av våra styrkor som bidrar till en aktiv kompetensutveckling och som ger mervärde till alla som möter oss.

-2021 blev vi certifierade som ett Great Place To Work
