Arbitrability and restrictions on arbitration
2.1
How is it determined whether a dispute is arbitrable in your jurisdiction?
 
Greece
According to Greek law (see mainly Article 867 of the Greek Code of Civil Procedure), any private law disputes between individuals or state entities (acting as fiscus) can be referred to arbitration. Thus, the following cases cannot be referred to arbitration:

  • criminal cases;
  • administrative disputes that fall within the competence of the Council of State as specified in Articles 94 and 95 of the Greek Constitution;
  • family disputes (eg, relations between relatives);
  • labour disputes (except for collective bargaining disputes); and
  • tax disputes.
