Arbitration in Belgium

By Alexander Hansebout

Belgium is an arbitration-friendly jurisdiction and is a signatory to the New York Convention. Its national Arbitration Act (part VI of the Belgium Judicial Code) was reformed in 2013; and, with some exceptions and amendments, is now based on the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) model law. The Arbitration Act was fine-tuned by the Act of 25 December 2016, which entered into force on 9 January 2017.
