  • A party was not duly notified of the arbitration or was prevented from participating in the arbitration;
  • The award concerns a dispute not contemplated by, or not falling within the terms of, the arbitration agreement, or contains issues beyond the scope of the arbitration agreement;

  • The award does not adequately or appropriately state the reasoning (unless this has been waived by the parties), or has not been signed;
