    Newyorská úmluva o uznání a výkonu cizích rozhodčích nálezů

    Uznání a výkon rozhodčích nálezů ze zahraničí a našich rozhodčích nálezů v zahraničí je upraven v Newyorské úmluvě, kterou ratifikovala Československá republika dne 3.10.1958 a Česká republika jako nástupnický stát je členem od 30.9.1993.
    K Úmluvě přistupují stále další státy, v roce 2015 např. Palestina, Comoros nebo Andorra, nyní je jich 156 z celého světa. Vykonatelnost rozhodčích nálezů ve většině civilizovaného světa je proto další velkou výhodou rozhodčího řízení oproti klasickému řízení soudnímu. Více informací viz www.newyorkconvention.org.

Arbitration court attached to the Czech Chamber of Commerce
and the Agricultural Chamber of the Czech Republic

Arbitration in the Czech Republic is governed by the Act. No. 216/1994 Coll., on Arbitration Proceedings and Enforcement of the Arbitral Awards, as amended, that came into force on 1 January 1995. Until the adoption of the above mentioned Act the Act. No. 93/1963 Coll. governed the arbitration proceedings, pursuant to which only international commercial disputes could be subject to arbitration. By adopting a new Act on arbitration the possibility to use these proceedings for deciding disputes outside the courts of law was much reinforced as the current rules of law enable use arbitration for any property disputes, except for the disputes relating to enforcement of decisions and “incidence disputes”, provided that both parties agree thereupon.
