Dispute resolution process
If a supplier has a dispute or complaint then they can raise it with us through our dispute resolution procedure which we set out in our contracts. This procedure would start with the supplier notifying us of the dispute or complaint and then the parties will attempt in good faith to negotiate a settlement within 30 days. This can involve escalation of the dispute to the Chief Finance Officer (or equivalent) of each party. If the dispute cannot be resolved then the procedure allows the supplier to take the dispute to arbitration under the London Court of International Arbitration procedural rules and the decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties.
