The Arbitration Act 1996 10 Years On: What the Users Say Preliminary Observations on a Major Survey

15th November 2006

As the tenth anniversary of the Arbitration Act 1996 approached, a number of bodies, in particular the Commercial Court Users' Committee, the British Maritime Law Association and the London Shipping Law Centre, thought that it would be appropriate to review the Act's workings to see whether, in the light of ten years' experience, any revisions to it might usefully be proposed. At their request, Bruce Harris agreed to set up and chair a committee to organize a comprehensive survey into how the Act has worked in practice. That survey has now been conducted. The report that will result will describe the work that has been done and set out the committee's conclusions.
