Answer ... No particular mention is made of the question of confidentiality in the Arbitration Law save for article 44(2), which provides that the arbitral award may not be published in whole or in part unless the parties have given approval. However, under CRCICA rules, the parties undertake to keep confidential all awards, decisions and materials submitted by the parties in the arbitral proceedings. This undertaking applies to the arbitrators, the tribunal-appointed experts and the secretary of the arbitral tribunal. Though they may, in writing, expressly agree to the contrary.
Answer ... There is an implied duty of confidentiality not only with respect to the arbitral proceedings and documents submitted, but with respect to the award itself which may not be made public without the parties’ consent, unless the award has been subject to nullity or enforcement proceedings, at which point its content will then fall in the public domain.
