The cost for an online panel request with email delivery of the panel to both parties is $30 (if mail or fax delivery to one or both parties is requested, the cost is $50). Requesting a panel online is the preferred method, being easier, quicker, more reliable, and less expensive than submission of the PDF form. To get an arbitration panel from FMCS, click on: REQUEST PANEL. Panels are usually sent out within hours of the request.
NOTE: IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A PANEL WITHIN 24 HOURS OF YOUR REQUEST, PLEASE NOTIFY US AT 202-606-5111
Bear in mind that, while the request form allows for special requirements (e.g., geography, affiliations, certifications, industry experience), a party submitting such requirements is certifying that both parties have agreed to what is specified.
