Confidentiality
15.1
Is arbitration seated in your jurisdiction confidential? Is a duty of confidentiality found in the arbitration legislation?
 
Slovakia
Pursuant to the Arbitration Act, an arbitrator must keep confidential all facts of which he or she becomes aware during or in connection with the arbitration, even after the end of his or her mandate. The arbitrator may be relieved of this obligation only by the parties. However, court decisions are published and are publicly available online.

Are there any exceptions to confidentiality?
 
Slovakia
The confidentiality obligation of the arbitrator under the Arbitration Act does not apply to the disclosure of information to law enforcement authorities and courts for the purpose of proceedings that relate to the subject matter of the arbitration, the arbitration proceedings or other matters relating to the performance of an arbitrator’s function or the activity of the permanent court of arbitration.
