MICAM’s advantages


Awards are rendered within three months from date of final submission. Appointment of arbitrator is made within 48 hours of receipt of all necessary documents.

International Recognition

Jamaica is a signatory to the 1958 Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (New York Convention), which enables MICAM’s arbitral awards to be enforceable in 157 countries. Furthermore, Jamaica has a sound legal framework that supports arbitration.


Arbitrations will usually cost less than court cases because the arbitration hearing is briefer, and the preparation work less demanding compared to litigation. For example, fees for the MICAM Fast Track Rules are capped and the duration for the proceedings is shorter. Cost of arbitral proceedings as well as other secondary costs, such as hotel, food & beverage, and transport in Jamaica are more competitive than in other countries in the region.
