The chapter commences with an overview of the history of cooperation between the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (hereinafter referred to as UNCITRAL) and the ICC before discussing the functioning of DOCDEX and the scope the ICC Rules for Documentary Instruments Dispute Resolution Expertise (hereinafter referred to as the DOCDEX Rules). Significant attention is dedicated to the benefits of the DOCDEX system and its limitations. Lastly, an analysis of how a DOCDEX Decision can be used in practice is made.
