The function of the ICDT Users Council is two ways. First, to address the global informational, knowledge and resource needs of users of international arbitration, mediation and other dispute services and second, to gain feedback from users of international arbitration, international arbitration practitioners and arbitrators to continually update on FICM Rules and procedures and its services for the benefit of users globally.
