Scottish Arbitration Rules
Section 7 – Scottish Arbitration Rules
30.Schedule 1 to the Act sets out the Scottish Arbitration Rules in the form of a single code. The Rules govern every arbitration seated in Scotland and form part of the general law of Scotland in the same way as the body of the Act, and not as a matter of contract between the parties. Whether a provision is included in the body of the Act or the schedule is irrelevant to its status as statutory law. Section 7 is however subject to section 9 whereby parties can agree that a default rule does not apply. The arbitration agreement between the parties will always have to be considered together with the Act.
