International Arbitration
Enforcement of awards
Are awards enforced in your jurisdiction? Under what procedure?
Pursuant to Article 824-bis of the Code of Civil Procedure, an arbitral award has the same effects as a court judgment. The party seeking enforcement must file the award with the court at the seat of the arbitration, requesting an exequatur. The court will limit itself to checking whether the award meets the formal requirements provided for by law.

If the first-instance court rejects the request, the applicant may appeal to the court of appeals, whose decision is final and binding.
