International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) and International Bar Association (IBA) have created a task force on data protection.

The ICCA and IBA react to the increasing relevance of data protection regulations, especially GDPR, to the arbitration procedures and parties. The aim of the data protection task force is to compose a guide that identifies the ways in which data protection may need to be taken into account during the course of an arbitration and how it would impact parties to the arbitration and the arbitration procedure. The draft Guide for public comment will be available in March 2019.
