He is an accredited arbitrator and can act as sole arbitrator, chairman and a member of first tier tribunals and can sit as a member of an appeal board for AIC (Agricultural Industries Confederation), FOSFA International (Federation of Oils Seeds and Fats Associations) and GAFTA (Grain and Feed Trade Association). He is also an accredited arbitrator for contracts incorporating BSPB (British Society of Plant Breeders) and BTPA (British Trade Potato Association) terms.

Philip Noyce has developed a set of arbitration rules designed for disputes where the cost of any claim is low (as a guide up to £10,000.00) and where both parties agree to them being used and Philip being appointed as a sole arbitrator. The Rules are listed under “Dispute Resolve” and are available upon request but, in general, involve the submission of statements of case and defence on a time table with a legally binding award published 50 days from the commencement of arbitration.
