Overview of Gafta Arbitration
When two parties have a dispute under a contract, it may be possible for them to use arbitration to resolve the issue. Arbitration is a method of dispute resolution in which the parties to a contract agree to have a third party rule on their dispute. The arbitration may be agreed to in a contract or as a condition of entering into a contract.
Parties may also agree to use an arbitration clause found in other types of legal instruments, such as a will, deed, or trust. The arbitration process can be similar to or different from the judicial process. Although arbitration is often less formal than court proceedings, arbitrators decide cases based on evidence and rules of law that are similar to those used by judges. Arbitration decisions may be enforced through court actions, fines, and other penalties.
Types of Disputes That Can Be Arbitrated
The Arbitration Tribunal may hear any dispute arising under the provisions of the Gafta Agreement and Gafta Arbitration Rules, including claims relating to dispute resolution, business interruption, payments and delivery, and the interpretation or application of Gafta governing law.
Disputes between the Buyer and Seller under the Gafta Agreement are settled by the arbitration tribunal. The arbitration tribunal can hear any type of dispute, including commercial, financial, and administrative claims. Each party would have to prove that it had a case that was worthy of arbitration.
Parties Involved in the Arbitration Process
The Gafta Arbitration Tribunal comprises three members – a presiding member, an appointed expert, and a neutral representative. A Buyer and a Seller are parties to the contract. The presiding member is a Gafta representative.
The appointed expert is an expert appointed by the Gafta Arbitration Tribunal to assist the tribunal in determining the facts of the case. The neutral representative is the representative of the Gafta Arbitration Tribunal, who participates in the proceedings but does not make the decision.
Costs and Timeframes of the Arbitration Process
The costs of the arbitration process mainly depend on the type of arbitration you choose. There are three types of arbitration – Gafta-based, Gafta-approved, and Gafta-administered arbitration. You may be able to obtain a reduction in your arbitration costs if you qualify for low-cost arbitration.
Gafta-based arbitration is the most common type of arbitration and the one covered in this guide. It is a flexible process that allows the parties to control the costs and timing of the arbitration, but the arbitrators remain independent and make their own decisions.
The timeline of the arbitration process varies from case to case and depends on the complexity of the dispute. In most cases, arbitration would take between one and two years. The Gafta Arbitration Rules lay down a schedule for the various stages of arbitration.
If either party fails to meet the schedule, the arbitrators may decide to extend the period. They have the authority to do so, but they will record the reasons for such an extension in the decision.
Disputes are common in business, but they don’t have to be disruptive. When an issue arises, you can refer it to arbitration to find a solution that is binding.
