Victorian Commercial Arbitration Scheme

The Victorian Commercial Arbitration Scheme (VCAS) is a set of Rules through which the legal profession and the public can resolve disputes quickly, without needing to go to court, under a capped-fee scheme with Victorian Barristers familiar with commercial arbitration practices.

The Panel of arbitrators is established and maintained by the Victorian Bar Council on behalf of Victorian Bar Inc. 

Under the VCAS Rules, the decision (the Award) is usually made within 90 to 120 days of the arbitration and is enforceable by a court.
