Confidentiality
15.1
Is arbitration seated in your jurisdiction confidential? Is a duty of confidentiality found in the arbitration legislation?
 
Montenegro
The only rule that the Arbitration Act provides in relation to confidentiality is that arbitral proceedings shall be closed to the public, unless otherwise agreed by the parties (Article 36(6)). However, in line with the general principles applicable in this regard, it could be argued compellingly that commercial arbitrations are confidential by default. That said, the scope of such confidentiality is subject to debate.
