If the parties have provided for CPR Arbitration without specifying either the Non-Administered or Administered Rules, the CPR Administered Rules shall apply to any arbitration agreement dated July 1, 2013 or later.  For agreements dated prior to that date the Non-Administered Rules apply unless the parties agree otherwise.

If your arbitration clause provides for CPR Non-Administered Arbitration, but the parties would rather use an administered arbitration process, the parties can enter into a submission agreement for administered arbitration.  Click here for CPR Administered Arbitration Model Clause.
