According to International Arbitration Law, any of the party involved arbitration has the right to appeal if they disagree with the arbitration award. They can file a complaint to the necessary associated authority if they have enough evidence to show the award was incorrect. The kind of arbitration award can be challenged by group in courtroom, particularly at the arbitration position by requesting it to have the adjudication award set aside. This procedure has been outlined clearly in the article 34 of the UNCITRAL.
As outlined in article 36 of the UNCITRAL and the Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Award, if there is an applicant who has already filed some request to a certain court for the approval of the arbitration award, the defendant has the right to challenge this process (Ronny 117). On the other hand, the enforcing and recognizing of an adjudication award stands a position of being rejected based on the state’s public policy.
That is; the state possesses the power to deny the execution of and the arbitration award in case it is seen to bring threat to the state’s understanding of public policy. Therefore, the entire process of arbitration can decline to foster an award on the based on the public policy. Similar to the New York Convention the national legislation does not accept an arbitral awards that violates public policy or “good morals.” On the other hand, there are other arbitration legislation which base their judgment either through public policy, or country’s public policy (Ronny 111).
Therefore, in our case, the source of public policy is a complex matter as it can simply be used to decline the award recognition. The content of the public policy differ from one state to another due to different legal system.
This difference may give wrong awards to the defendant especially when the arbitrations and the judicial decisions are granted without basing it on international or local public policy. In our case, the award will only be rejected by court in based on different range of circumstances. This happens to prevent discontent that can arise from desire to approve international awards and refute the court the power to impose awards that could infringe the policy (Ronny 137).
The function of the national courts in the international arbitration is recognized in almost all countries. This has reduced the challenges mentioned above concerning the arbitrations and definition of public policy. The role of a court ensures that there are effective arbitral proceedings.
In addition, the court plays an important role at different phases of arbitral process and particularly when the arbitral award has been rendered. It ensures that the enforcement stage has met given statutory conditions for it to be appropriately enforced. However, the court may decline to enforce the award on the basis of one of the ground outlined in Article V of the Convention on the Recognition, as well as, Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Award It is also known as the New York Convention. Through the NY Conventional, parties can challenge the process of enforcing arbitral awards base on various factors.
National courts can violate or accept the arbitral awards based on public policy. The national courts may interpret public policy at their own discretion. Therefore, the national court has the right to appropriately review the arbitral award’s qualities by considering the disposition of the public policy.
This may be the same scenario in recognizing action without taking into consideration the capability of the functional review in the acknowledgement context related to alternative factors such as private law claims, as well as, contract interpretation .Therefore, in Guerrero scenario, the court had the right to violate the arbitration award according to how it interpreted the public policy. This will depend to the country’s important values which are connected to the impartiality, as well as, the morals of the state. Such principles are important tools for the tribunal to make good judgment in their final decisions.
The decision to designate an award differs from a petition. The actions to reserve are designed to make sure that a state, through its courts exercise maximum control on different arbitration awards. There are major jurisdictions factors for reserving an award that differ from those under the UNICITRAL.
For example, if the decision of the arbitration is wrong or the decisions of the tribunal are open to serious doubt, it is just and proper for the court to set aside the case and make proper decisions. On the other hand, the judge may accept that the tribunal executed a personal perception of the law regarding deciding on the disagreement and short of providing both parties a chance to feature the tribunal on the relevant law.
Resultantly, the judge will establish a channel for segregating the award as outlined under article 34 section (2) of the model law. In our case, the court may decide to set aside the case if such jurisdiction grounds had not been properly followed (Cross, Roger & Frank 78).
