Grounds for challenging an award
14.1
What are the grounds on which an award can be challenged, appealed or otherwise set aside in your jurisdiction?
 
Ghana
An arbitral award may be set aside where the applicant satisfies the court that:

  • a party to the arbitration was under some disability or incapacity;
  • the law applicable to the arbitration agreement is not valid;
  • the applicant was not given notice of the appointment of the arbitrator or of the proceedings, or was unable to present its case;
  • the award deals with a dispute not within the scope of the arbitration agreement or outside the agreement; however, the court shall not set aside any part of the award that falls within the scope of the agreement;
  • a party has failed to conform to the agreed procedure;
  • the arbitrator has an interest in the subject matter of the arbitration which he or she failed to disclose; or
  • the subject matter of the dispute is not arbitrable.
