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?
 
Hungary
An award may not appealed or revised, but can be set aside in justified cases. The New York Convention sets out the grounds for dismissal of an award. Under the Arbitration Act, the court will refuse enforcement of an arbitration award if it deems that:

  • the subject of the dispute may not be referred to arbitration in accordance with Hungarian law; or
  • the arbitration award is in conflict with Hungarian public order.

A party may turn to the regular (state) court and initiate proceedings to set aside the award within 60 days of receiving the award.
