Indeed, it was widely believed in the arbitration community that the FCPL provisions failed to reflect international best practise and that the ambiguous and inconsistent framework of the 1992 law paved the way to so-called 'guerrilla tactics' employed by recalcitrant parties with the effect of significantly hampering the progress of arbitral proceedings conducted in the UAE.
Thus, the UAE Courts annulled arbitral awards because witnesses failed to give an oath in the exact form prescribed for court hearings in the FCPL. Arbitral awards were also negated because the arbitrators did not sign each page of the award or that they were not physically present in the UAE when they signed the award.
Inevitably, the rigid application of the FCPL by UAE Courts on UAE-seated arbitrations sent a signal to the business community that the UAE is not a pro- arbitration jurisdiction.
Furthermore, a challenge to the award no longer suspends enforcement as it did under the FCPL.
