Costs
10.1
How will the tribunal approach the issue of costs?
 
Croatia
Article 35 of the Arbitration Act expressly provides that the arbitrators have the right to decide on the costs of the proceedings upon a party’s request. This includes the power to apportion costs among the parties and, if necessary, to order that one party reimburse the full amount or a portion of the costs to the other. The law provides that the arbitrators will decide on the issue of costs according to their discretion, taking into account all circumstances of the case, and in particular the outcome of the dispute.

If the parties do not accept the decision on costs, the president of the Zagreb Commercial Court will decide on the costs in commercial matters and the president of the Zagreb County Court in other matters.
