On the Consideration of the Procedures to Challenge Arbitrators in the Egyptian Arbitration Law as Mandatory and the Ability to Appeal Decisions Made by Arbitral Institutions. A Commentary on the Cairo Court of Appeal Seventh Circuit Commercial at the 7 December 2015 Session

Dalia Hussein


The Cairo Court of Appeal rendered an important decision regarding an arbitral tribunal’s decision on the challenge of an arbitrator, concluding that the procedures to challenge arbitrators provided for in the Egyptian Arbitration Law are not part of public policy. The Court thus rejected the party’s request to set aside the challenge decision and refused to examine it before the issuance of the final award.
