Virtual hearings are not a new concept – the AAA-ICDR® has supported the option to parties for years.

Now, with the “new normal,” our hearing locations, like most physical locations, are not accessible. Hearings must take place with all the participants working remotely, which adds a new set of challenges.

The AAA-ICDR has implemented the following to create a smooth, virtual hearing experience for parties:

  • Pre-determined settings to promote privacy, security and ease of use
  • Best-practices training guides for AAA-ICDR staff, arbitrators, counsel and parties

Our preparedness plan

Business Continuity. We have previously incorporated business continuity planning into our operations, and we have updated that planning on a continuing basis so that we can continue our work as seamlessly as possible under circumstances such as the spread of COVID-19.
Focus on security. We have implemented best practices, technologies and procedures to help protect data and technology resources. The protections implements apply to all case data and equipment stored and managed on the AAA-ICDR’s vast technology infrastructure.
Uninterrupted Service. We have planning that provides for backup servers and redundancies, and security on our IT, case filing and management, and finance operations.
