The Arbitral Agent is an IFTA staff member designated by the President of the Alliance to act as the neutral administrator for all arbitration and pre-arbitration matters conducted by IFTA Arbitration. The Arbitral Agent does not have authority to make any substantive decisions but is empowered by the IFTA Rules to make certain procedural decisions and take actions required for efficient administration of the arbitration procedures.
Under the IFTA Rules, the Arbitrator must transmit the Final Award to the Arbitral Agent within 45 days after the matter is deemed submitted for decision. The Arbitral Agent will send the Final Award to the parties via email, to be followed by USPS certified or registered mail (if a party would like to receive the Final Award via courier mail, it must provide its courier account number). Any party may seek confirmation of and/or file or register the arbitrator’s award with any court having jurisdiction to confirm the award. IFTA Arbitration Awards are enforceable in the U.S. and internationally (under the United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards).
