Enforcement of awards
Are awards enforced in your jurisdiction? Under what procedure?
Hong Kong

Answer ... The successful party in an arbitration may apply to court for leave to enforce the award and to enter judgment in the same terms as the award under Section 84(2) of the Arbitration Ordinance. Once judgment has been obtained, the successful party may pursue the same enforcement measures as for any court judgment, including execution against goods belonging to the judgment debtor, a garnishee order or a charging order.

When leave is granted, an award cannot be enforced until after 14 days (or such period ordered by the court) from the date of service of the court’s order on the debtor. If the debtor applies to set aside within that time, the award cannot be enforced until the setting aside application has been disposed of (see Order 73, Rules 10(6) and (7) of the Rules of High Court (Cap 4A).
