Award
12.1
What procedural and substantive requirements must be met by an award?
 
Bahrain
An award must be made in writing and signed by the arbitrator(s). In arbitration proceedings with more than one arbitrator, the signatures of a majority will suffice, provided that the reason for any omitted signature(s) is stated.

The award must state the reasons on which it is based, unless the parties have agreed that no reasons are needed or the award is an award on agreed terms. The award must also state the date and the place of arbitration, and will be deemed to have been made at that place. After the award has been made, a copy signed by the arbitrators must be delivered to each party.

12.2
Must the award be produced within a certain timeframe?
 
Bahrain
Bahraini law imposes no specific time limits on the production of awards. The parties may agree that the tribunal is subject to a time limit - for example, by adopting arbitration rules that stipulate a timeframe with which an award must be made (eg, the rules of the Bahrain Chamber for Dispute Resolution in partnership with the American Arbitration Association).
