28.I. SECTION 28(1) OF THE ARBACT 28.I.1. Reasonable application of the CCP and change in the concept of terminating the arbitral proceedings resulting from the amendment to Section 23 of the ArbAct (Amendment to the ArbAct) The Act lacks any special rules regulating the service of an arbitral award or other documents in arbitration. As concerns the service of the arbitral award, the commentary to Sections 14 and 19 of the ArbAct regarding the service of documents applies by analogy. Naturally, it is also possible to consider the application of the CCP by analogy, unless the parties stipulate otherwise in their arbitration agreement, or in their agreement on procedure concluded pursuant to Section 19(1) of the ArbAct. Hence, the parties may also explicitly agree that the arbitral award will only be served in its electronic form.
