International Arbitration

The parties
5.1
Are there any restrictions on who can be a party to an arbitration agreement?
 
Bahrain
There are no express statutory restrictions on who can be a party to an arbitration agreement. It would be prudent to ensure that prospective parties to arbitration agreements have the power and authority to enter into them, and that they are not minors and do not lack capacity.

5.2
Are the parties under any duties in relation to the arbitration?
 
Bahrain
The parties are generally free to decide on what duties and standards will apply. Certain arbitral institutions (eg, the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce) stipulate requirements relating, for example, to conduct that will apply to all arbitrations conducted under their administration.

Arbitration in Bahrain is also subject to the general duties and procedural rules contained within the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration. For example, Article 24(3) of the UNCITRAL Model Law requires that all statements, documents and other information supplied to the tribunal by one party be communicated to the other party, to ensure fairness, objectivity and impartiality in the arbitration proceedings.
