Vollstreckung von Entscheidungen der Maritimen Schiedskommission bei der Handels- und Industriekammer der Russischen Föderation in Russland und im Ausland (Приведение в исполнение решений Морской арбитражной комиссии при Торгово-промышленной палате РФ в России и за рубежом)
The article lays down the specifics of the procedure of enforcement of the awards of Maritime Arbitration Commission (MAC) in Russia. It should be noted that Russian courts are not entitled to review the arbitral awards on the merits, but they do this in principle when examining whether the enforcement of an arbitration award is compatible with Russian public policy. Debtors (respondents in the proceedings conducted by the MAC) are often prone to invoke alleged unequal treatment of the parties by the arbitrators and a violation of the principle of adversary proceedings. In most cases, the courts find no reason to declare MAC awards non-enforceable. However, in order to avoid the risk of non-enforceability of the award, MAC arbitrators now typically try to express their position on all arguments of the parties in the award, which can increase the duration of the arbitration and increase the scope of the award. In the article an example of the successful enforcement of MAC awards in Denmark is also given.
