While the first arbitration court to be created in Uzbekistan was established in 2002, special legislation (the Law on Arbitration Courts) was adopted only in 2006. While the main provisions of the law are based on UNCITRAL Model Law principles, there are some significant features. For example, under this Law the arbitral tribunal has to apply only Uzbek legislation and violation of this rule is a ground for setting aside the award.
In addition to the Law on Arbitration Courts, arbitration is also regulated by the relevant provisions of the Commercial Procedural Code and the Civil Procedural Code. The Civil Procedural Code contains rules regarding arbitration procedure and the enforcement of arbitration awards relating to noncommercial disputes. The Commercial Procedural Code sets out the rules applicable to the enforcement of arbitral awards for commercial disputes.
