Answer ... The Arbitration Act expressly prescribes that the proceedings shall be closed to the public, unless otherwise agreed by the parties (Article 24(4)). Although it could be argued that commercial arbitrations as such are confidential by default, the scope of such confidentiality is uncertain.
Answer ... Given that confidentiality is not addressed under the Arbitration Act, there are no explicit exceptions to confidentiality. However, the parties could agree on such exceptions as they find appropriate.
