Arbitration (Scotland) ACT 2010

Consumer arbitrations

15.Certain other statutory provisions apply to arbitration in Scotland. Sections 89 to 91 of the UK Arbitration Act 1996 apply to Scotland. Together with the Unfair Arbitration Agreements (Specified Amount) Order 1996 (S.I. 1996/3211) and the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 (S.I. 1999/2083), those provisions provide protections for those who might inadvertently agree to unfair low-value consumer arbitration clauses.
