3.2
Are there any provisions of legislation or any other legal sources in your jurisdiction concerning the separability of arbitration agreements?
 
Moldova
The principle of separability applies to both domestic and international arbitration. Accordingly, the validity of the arbitration agreement is regarded (and is addressed) separately from the validity of the contract in which it is included.

3.3
Are there provisions on the seat and/or language of the arbitration if there is no agreement between the parties?
 
Moldova
The parties are free to agree on the place of arbitration. Failing such agreement, the place of arbitration shall be determined by the arbitral tribunal, having regard to the circumstances of the case, including the convenience of the parties. Notwithstanding this, the arbitral tribunal may, unless otherwise agreed by the parties, meet at any place it considers appropriate:

  • to consult among its members;
  • to hear witnesses, experts or the parties; or
  • to inspect goods, other property or documents.

The parties are free to agree on the language or languages to be used in the arbitral proceedings. Failing such agreement, the arbitral tribunal shall determine the language or languages to be used in the proceedings.
