How does the SIMI Scheme work?
The claimant (or his/her representative) requests the appointment of an Arbitrator to the dispute matter.   This application will include a brief description of the dispute, a copy of the original contract, an  administration fee, and any other documents that are relevant to the dispute matter.  The Institute writes to the Respondent and requests the payment of the capped Arbitrator's fee in the sum of €1,300 plus VAT.  On receipt of this payment the Chairman proceeds to appoint an Arbitrator to the matter who will contact the parties directly.
