Application
2   These Rules apply to matters referred to arbitration under section 
17 of the Automobile Insurance Premiums Regulation (AR 124/2004).
Part 1 
Arbitrators Roster and Appointments
Arbitrators roster
3(1)  The Automobile Insurance Arbitrators Roster is hereby 
established.
(2)  The arbitrators roster is composed of not more than 10 persons 
appointed to the roster from time to time by the AIDR Committee.
Appointment to the roster
4(1)  The following criteria must, in the opinion of the AIDR 
Committee, be met by applicants for appointment to the arbitrators 
roster before they are appointed to the roster:
	(a)	demonstrated knowledge and experience in conducting 
hearings, for example, by previous experience as an arbitrator 
or membership on decision-making or quasi-judicial bodies;
	(b)	sufficient knowledge of the Arbitration Act, for example, by 
successful completion of the Arbitration Course offered by 
the Alberta Arbitration and Mediation Society, appropriate 
completion of courses offered by the Alberta Foundation of 
Administrative Justice, successful completion of equivalent 
courses, or by professional knowledge and experience;
	(c)	demonstrated capability to understand and to calculate 
premiums in accordance with the Automobile Insurance

request and to completion of cases in a timely way;
	(e)	good character and integrity;
	(f)	capacity and willingness to commit to and comply with the

(2)  The AIDR Committee must seek applicants who meet the AIDR

opportunity in any other manner the AIDR Committee considers 
appropriate, or both.
(3)  Subject to subsection (4), a person may be appointed to the 
arbitrators roster for a period of time specified by the AIDR 
Committee, but the appointment may, at the AIDR Committee's 
discretion, be renewed for the same or a different term any number of 
times.
(4)  No appointment or renewal of appointment of an arbitrator to the 
arbitrators roster may be for more than 3 years, but a person so

Committee at the sole discretion of the Committee.
(5)  An arbitrator must be removed from the arbitrators roster by the 
AIDR Committee
	(a)	on expiration of a term of appointment, unless the term is 
renewed, or
	(b)	on receipt by the chair of the AIDR Committee of the written 
resignation of the arbitrator.
Conditions of appointment as arbitrator of a dispute
5   Before an arbitrator is appointed from the arbitrators roster to 
decide a dispute,
	(a)	the AIDR Committee must find out from the prospective 
appointee whether he or she has sufficient time available to 
serve as arbitrator and make a decision as expeditiously as 
circumstances allow, and
	(b)	a prospective appointee must tell the AIDR Committee 
whether the prospective appointee is aware of, or of any 
circumstances that may give rise to, a reasonable 
apprehension of bias if he or she were appointed as arbitrator 
to decide a dispute.
Appointment of arbitrator
6(1)  For each dispute referred to arbitration under section 17 of the 
Automobile Insurance Premiums Regulation (AR 124/2004), the AIDR 
Committee must decide whether one arbitrator or a 3-person tribunal is 
to be appointed.
(2)  Arbitrators are to be appointed
	(a)	in rotation from the arbitrators roster, with the initial order of 
rotation set by the AIDR Committee, or
	(b)	in such other manner as the AIDR Committee may 
determine, as the situation warrants.
(3)  If an arbitrator on the roster cannot be appointed or is unable to 
accept an appointment, the next arbitrator on the list must be 
approached for appointment, and so on until the appointment is made 
unless, in a particular case, another method of appointment is decided 
on by the AIDR Committee.
(4)  If a 3-person tribunal of arbitrators is appointed, the AIDR 
Committee may appoint one of them as chair or delegate that function 
to the tribunal.
(5)  If the arbitrators are delegated responsibility to appoint a chair 
from among themselves but are unable to do so within 14 days of the 
date of their appointment, the AIDR Committee must make the 
appointment.
(6)  An arbitrator must be appointed in writing and a copy of the 
appointment must be sent by the AIDR Committee to the

Schedule 
to the Arbitration Proceedings Rules 
 
Code of Ethical Conduct
The following Code of Ethical Conduct applies to arbitrators appointed 
to the arbitrators roster.  "You" means the arbitrator.
1   Impartiality and independence
You must act impartially as between the parties and independently of 
the parties.
2   Fairness
You must be fair.  This includes both what you do (or do not do) and 
the perceptions of the parties about what you do (or do not do).
3   Respect
You must treat the parties with courtesy and respect.
4   Disclosure
You must disclose anything that is or might be seen to be bias for or 
against one party or the other.  This may cause you to decline an 
appointment.  If in doubt, disclose the doubt. 
If a matter arises after arbitration proceedings start, disclose it to the 
parties and
	?	ask the parties for their views if you are satisfied no bias or 
reasonable apprehension of bias would arise.  Take the views 
of the parties into consideration when making your decision 
about continuing in your role, and
	?	decide yourself if you can continue in your role as arbitrator.
5   Conflict of interest
You must avoid conflicts of interest, actual or perceived.  Obvious 
conflicts of interest include:
	?	if a family member, relation or friend is the policyholder,
	?	if someone you know well is a party or witness in arbitration 
proceedings,
	?	if you are insured by one of the parties, and
	?	if you or someone you know stands to gain some kind of 
financial or other benefit from the outcome of the arbitration 
proceedings.
6   Availability
The complaint resolution process is intended to be as speedy, and 
professional, as possible. 
You are expected to accept only those assignments you can complete 
in a competent and timely way.
7   Competence and knowledge
The issues you will be arbitrating can be complex.  You will be 
expected to invest your own time in understanding the legislation (Act, 
regulations, and rules, and AIDR Committee processes) to have a good 
grasp of the legislative and policy framework of the issues you will be 
arbitrating.  You should satisfy yourself that you will be sufficiently 
competent and knowledgeable to undertake an appointment.
8   Integrity
You are expected to act with integrity.
9   Arbitration Act prevails
This Code is intended to supplement, not replace, any obligation or 
responsibility imposed by the Arbitration Act and by other law.
