In arbitration, an arbitrator delivers a decision that needs to be enforced in order to be of value to the parties. Emirate law regulates two types of judgment enforcement: normal and speedy. Normal enforcement pertains to judgments that can be enforced if deemed non-appealable before the Court of Appeal. Speedy enforcement refers to judgments that can be enforced even when still appealable. Emirate law states that arbitral awards are subjected to ‘speedy’ or rapid enforcement rules. This article concludes that a clearer regulation regarding this issue will be highly welcomed.
