In German-language decision 4A_666/2012 of 2 June 2013, the Swiss Supreme Court considered the statutory time limit for filing a request for revision of an arbitral award.
The Swiss Supreme Court has dismissed a request for revision of an international arbitral award, finding that the petitioner had failed to comply with the statutory time limit for filing such a request. The decision provides a few useful pointers for practitioners in relation to the timing of a request for a revision.
Given the restrictive stance of the Supreme Court in this decision, practitioners would be well advised to consider that the time limit is triggered as soon as there is any indication of new facts that could justify a revision of the award. (Decision 4A_666/2012.)
