Covid-19 Update on WIPO's Arbitration and Mediation Operations

The WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center continues to receive and administer cases submitted under the WIPO Mediation, Arbitration, Expedited Arbitration and Expert Determination Rules.

Until further notice, any new request for WIPO Mediation, Arbitration, Expedited Arbitration and Expert Determination should be submitted electronically via email to arbiter.mail@wipo.int. Alternatively, such request may be submitted online using the WIPO IP Portal form.
