Arbitration Clause In International Agreement

Therefore, a statutory or contractual limitation requirement for claims, unless the parties have agreed otherwise in the manner described above, will no longer be initiated unless the arbitration tribunal is fully constituted. This could, of course, allow the recalcitrant respondents to delay the establishment of a court in order to allow the statute of limitations in circumstances where the time remaining after the current statute of limitations authorizes such a strategy of “guerrilla” of the respondent party. It is therefore important that the parties provide either through the agreement of the institutional rules of arbitration or by the inclusion in the arbitration agreement of a clause stipulating, for example, that arbitration begins with the filing or receipt of the arbitration application. If the parties wish to have the threshold for the application of the settlement higher than that set in this Regulation, the above formula should be supplemented by the following formulation: as a general rule, arbitration clauses cover all disputes arising from the contract concerned and the courts and arbitration tribunals will not favour arguments that certain disputes are not covered by the wording of the clause. Another result of the principle of dissociatability mentioned above is that a compromise clause remains valid even if the contract in which it is established is invalid. Moreover, there are limited reasons to question the very validity of a compromise clause. The New York Convention stipulates that the courts of a signatory country must maintain a compromise clause, unless the clause is “null and void, inoperative or not.” In the past, an arbitration agreement could only be proved by a formal written document, executed by both parties, which, in practice, made it difficult to prove that the parties had agreed to the arbitration. If confidentiality is a concern, it is useful to introduce a confidentiality clause, as the approach to confidentiality may vary depending on the different arbitration institutions and jurisdictions. A clause dealing specifically with arbitration is recommended, rather than relying on broader confidentiality rules applicable to the underlying contract.

Many of the institutions offer standard formulas for these clauses.14 Alternatively, choose arbitration rules (such as SIAC rules) that contain explicit confidentiality clauses. The parties should carefully choose appropriate legislation. The current legislation of a contract can be decisive not only for its birth and validity, but also for determining whether disputes arising from or related to the contract can be subject to arbitration and what corrective measures can be granted by arbitrators. It is therefore always advisable to specify the legislation in force when drafting contracts. If the parties do not choose the applicable law, the arbitrators will make the choice for them. (iv) Sovereign Treaties. This chapter is very redesigned. The author broadened the discussion of ICSID arbitration clauses and added a section on the unfortunate issue of the awarding of ICSID arbitration agreements.
