Switzerland - International Arbitration Convention March 27/ August 29, 1969

Chapter VII: - Actions for Annulment or Review

I. Action for Annulment

Article 36 - Grounds

An action for annulment of the arbitral award may be brought before the judicial authority provided for in Article 3, where it is alleged that:

a. the arbitral tribunal was not properly constituted

b. that the arbitral tribunal erroneously declared itself to have or not to have jurisdiction

c. that it pronounced on points not submitted to it or, subject to Article 32, failed to make a determination on one of the items in the claim

d. that there was a breach of one of the mandatory procedural rules referred to in Article 25

e. that the arbitral tribunal awarded to one of the parties something more or other than claimed, without being authorised to do so by a provision of the law

f. that the award is arbitrary in that it was based on findings which were manifestly contrary to the facts appearing on the file, or in that it constitutes a clear violation of law or equity

g. that the arbitral tribunal made its award after the expiration of the time-limit imposed on it in which to accomplish its mission

h. that the conditions of Article 33 were not complied with or that the order is unintelligible or contradictory

i. that the fees of the arbitrators fixed by the arbitral tribunal are manifestly excessive.
