This chapter addresses the legal framework for the conduct of arbitration and the enforcement of awards in Singapore. It begins with a look at the legislative framework for arbitration in Singapore, covering the history of arbitration regulation in Singapore, the scope of the Singapore International Arbitration Act, the Arbitration Act that regulates domestic arbitration in Singapore, and the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes. It then considers the way in which Singapore courts lend their support to, and exercise supervisory powers over, arbitrations seated in Singapore. The chapter concludes with an analysis of the means by which awards can be challenged and enforced in Singapore.
