History and structure of the DIS
The German Institution for Arbitration (Deutsche Institution für Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit eV, the DIS) is the most important organisation for arbitration in Germany. It was established on 1 January 1992 as a result of the merger of the German Arbitration Committee and the German Arbitration Institute. The DIS is closely linked to the German Association of Chambers of Industry and Commerce and the German Chambers of Industry and Commerce, which are members of the DIS and refer to the DIS Arbitration Rules as the basis for their arbitration proceedings in general.
