Updates to AF’s Arbitration Rules

As communicated in the May 2020 E-Bulletin, AF’s Member Council and Board of Directors approved the following updates to the Arbitration Rules. While both Rules were originally scheduled to become effective August 1, the effective date for Rule 5-3 has been postponed until later this year. 

NOTE: These updates do not apply to NY PIP arbitration filings, which are administered under separate rules.
  • Rule 3-3: The monetary limit to request a three-person panel is $15,000 for all forums. (Effective August 1)
  • Rule 5-3: For Auto supplemental filings, evidence submitted by the parties to support or dispute the supplemental damages will be viewable by the parties. (Effective date to be announced)
The Rules document and Reference Guide available on AF’s website will be updated as we near the effective dates.
