Another important formality was that the arbitration agreement was only valid if it was entered into by individuals (or representatives of companies) who had a particular power to refer the case to arbitration. In the case of individuals who sign on behalf of companies, this power cannot be accepted and proof of the explicit granting of power would be required; whether by proxy or by instruments of incorporation (articles of association/statutes).

Improving contractual security in the insurance market may lead parties to focus more on contract terms from the outset. In the past, policyholders would have sought dispute resolution rules only when asserting rights under the policy. The value of the District Court`s participation in the arbitration depends on the speed and quality of the courts in that particular jurisdiction….
