Arbitration (Scotland) ACT 2010


Section 30 – Arbitrability of disputes

89.Section 30 makes it clear that the Act does not make any dispute arbitrable where the subject-matter of the dispute means it would not otherwise be capable of arbitration under Scots law. For instance, matters which affect public rights or the status of parties in law may not be referred to arbitration.
