This study dealt with the arbitrator of emergency in commercial arbitration and this development is the most innovative in the rules of commercial arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris in 1912, where a new trend was adopted with regard to interim and urgent measures before the final form of the arbitral tribunal. The International Chamber of Commerce has already adopted the rules of this system before the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce.

The emergence of new systems in commercial arbitration needs to be examined in order to understand, interpret and check its suitability to the needs of the parties to the dispute in the framework of commercial arbitration. Among the most important new systems are the rules of emergency arbitrator, which have been taken by many commercial arbitration centers because of the advantages of one or both parties when it needs urgent and incidental measures that cannot wait until the formation of the arbitral tribunal. Therefore, the appointment of an emergency arbitrator may be requested for such measures. Many of the centers have organized such rules as Stockholm Rules of Arbitration in Sweden and ICC in Paris and others.

The study concluded with a set of results, the most important of which was that the emergency arbitrator is one of the modern rules that serve commercial arbitration, which began by relying on Western legal systems not Arab laws.
