Arbitrability and restrictions on arbitration
2.1
How is it determined whether a dispute is arbitrable in your jurisdiction?
 
Bulgaria
The Civil Procedure Code envisages that commercial or civil property disputes are arbitrable, except for disputes regarding:

  • rights in rem or possession of real estate;
  • child support obligations;
  • employment relationships; or
  • consumer issues (a ‘consumer’ is any natural person who acquires products or uses services for purposes that do not fall within the scope of his or her commercial or professional activity).

2.2
Are there any restrictions on the choice of seat of arbitration for certain disputes?
 
Bulgaria
The Civil Procedure Code allows the parties to select a seat of arbitration that is seated abroad (outside of Bulgaria), if one of the parties has its habitual residence, seat or place of actual management in a foreign country. There are no other restrictions on the seat of arbitration in relation to certain types of disputes.
