Arbitration Law Monthly
Serious irregularity: admitted irregularity
By section 68(2)(i) of the Arbitration Act 1996 there can be an appeal against an arbitration award by reason of “any irregularity in the conduct of the proceedings or in the award which is admitted by the tribunal or by any arbitral or other institution or person vested by the parties with powers in relation to the proceedings or the award”. There is little relevant authority on this provision, which makes the decision of Sir Ross Cranston in Doglemor Trade Ltd and Others v Caledor Consulting Ltd and Another  EWHC 3342 (Comm) of particular interest.
