Answer ... The agreement must be made in writing and duly signed by the parties. The Arbitration Act recognises not only hard-copy signatures, but also electronic signatures.
Answer ... An arbitration clause may be included in an agreement, but may alternatively be concluded in a standalone arbitration agreement.
Answer ... As a general rule, the parties may agree on the language(s) to be applied during the arbitration. If no such agreement is made, the tribunal must determine the language(s) to be used during the arbitration.
Similarly, the parties may freely agree on the place of the arbitration. If no such agreement is made, the place of the arbitration is determined by the tribunal, taking into account the circumstances of the case, including the requirement that the location be suitable for the parties.
