10.1
How will the tribunal approach the issue of costs?
 
Bahrain
Subject to what has been agreed between the parties, the tribunal has broad discretion in the making of an award for costs.

Many arbitral institutions, including the Bahrain Chamber for Dispute Resolution in partnership with the American Arbitration Association, expressly provide for the calculation and allocation of administrative fees and tribunal fees.
