International arbitration in Indonesia continues to be governed by Law No. 30 of 1999 on Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolutions (“Arbitration Law”), to which no legislative amendment was made in 2014. Indonesia has also ratified the New York Convention through Presidential Decree No. 34 of 1981.
B.1 Setting Aside Domestic Arbitration Awards
Under Article 70 of the Arbitration Law, a party can file an application to Indonesian courts to set aside a domestic arbitration award if there is a suspicion that one of the following conditions has occurred: (a) after the award was rendered, a letter or document submitted in the examination proceedings was admitted as forged or declared as a forgery; (b) after the award was rendered, documents which are dispositive were discovered, having been concealed by the opposing party; or (c) the award was a result of fraud committed by one of the parties during the arbitration proceedings.
