Definition of Arbitration:
The definition of "Arbitration" is set forth in Law Number 30 of 1999, in Article 1 item 1. However, in practice, Arbitration is defined as a dispute resolution method by giving authority to a neutral and independent third party – so-called Arbitrator - to examine and try a case at the first and final instances, and the decision shall be final and binding on the parties, cannot be petitioned for appeal, cassation and even reconsideration.

Based on the definition, it can be said that BAPMI's Arbitration is substantially similar to Court, and Arbitrators in an Arbitration process are similar to judges in a litigation process, with the following differences:

  1. Arbitration is a choice and agreement of the disputing parties;
  2. the Arbitration process can be proceeded after the petition of the disputing parties to BAPMI;
  3. the parties are entitled to determine whether they use one (Sole Arbitrator) or more Arbitrator (Arbitral Tribunal);
  4. the parties are free to determine the place of Arbitration;
  5. the parties are entitled to choose Arbitrators;
  6. Arbitrators are selected based on their expertise;
  7. proceedings are conducted according to BAPMI's Rules;
  8. Arbitration proceedings are closed to the public;
  9. Arbitration Award recognizes no precedent or jurisprudence;
  10. Arbitrators must pass an award on the basis of fairness and justice (ex aequo et bono), not solely on legal provisions;
  11. Arbitration Award is non-appealable;
  12. Arbitration Award is not constrained by limits of jurisdiction of state law.
