Arbitrability and restrictions on arbitration
2.1
How is it determined whether a dispute is arbitrable in your jurisdiction?
 
Czech Republic
According to the Arbitration Act, only property disputes are arbitrable, except for disputes arising from consumer contracts, disputes relating to enforcement of a decision and disputes that arise from bankruptcy.

In addition, an arbitration agreement may be validly concluded only if the dispute between the parties can be resolved by concluding a judicial settlement.

Disputes relating to personal status, marital status, family law matters and administrative matters are not arbitrable.

Are there any restrictions on the choice of seat of arbitration for certain disputes?
 
Czech Republic
No – the seat of arbitration is increasingly specified in the arbitration agreement.

If the seat is not determined by the parties, the proceedings shall take place at a location determined by the arbitrators, having regard to the lawful interests of the parties.
