A. LEGISLATION, TRENDS AND TENDENCIES A.1 Arbitration in Infrastructure Concession Contracts The recently enacted Law 1682 of 2013 (“Law 1682”) governs transport infrastructure contracts. Article 14 of Law 1682 provides that disputes arising from such contracts may be submitted to arbitration. However, the arbitral tribunal may not decide on the legality of an administrative act when such act was issued by the State entity as a result of its exceptional powers. The arbitral agreement must contain the suitability requirements to be met by the arbitrators. Nevertheless, the contract or any document related to the contract may not contain the specific nomination of the arbitrators that will compose the tribunal. State entities must establish in the arbitration agreement a cap on arbitrators’ fees. The Colombian National Agency of Infrastructure (NAI) established arbitration in its model concession contract as one of the mechanisms to resolve potential disputes. The model contract provides that when the conditions are met to resort to international arbitration, the rules of the International Center for Dispute Resolution of the American Arbitration Association will apply.
