Answer ... Article 31 of Schedule 1 to the act prescribes that an award shall:
- be in writing;
- be signed by the arbitrator or a majority of the arbitrators where more than one arbitrator has been appointed;
- state the reasons for the award (unless otherwise agreed by the parties or unless the award is in terms of a settlement reached); and
- state the juridical seat.
After the award is made, a signed copy must be delivered to the parties.
