The Arbitration Board has 11 members (named below). Nine members are appointed by the Danish Transport and Construction Agency on the recommendation of the Danish Construction Association, which nominates two members, Danish Social Housing (BL), the Danish Association of Architectural Firms (Danske ARK), the Danish Association of Consulting Engineers (FRI), the Danish Federation of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, the National Association for Building, the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) and the Danish Association of Construction Clients.
Two additional members are appointed by the Danish Transport and Construction Agency without being nominated by an organisation. At present, the two members represent the Danish Building and Property Agency and the Danish Road Directorate. The board has appointed these two members as chair and deputy chair for a four-year term beginning on 26 June 2014.
The other members of the board are appointed for an unlimited term of office and generally have experience from working in the industry. A board member is only bound by his or her own convictions and not by any instructions issued by the nominating organisation.
Members of the Arbitration Board can work in that capacity as lawyers, expert appraisers, specialist experts or technical arbitrators, and the board as a whole thus has both theoretical and technical experience and ‘a finger on the pulse’ in relation to the tasks carried out by the board.
The board has adjusted its statutes and rules of procedure 28 January 2017.
