30-day time limit to challenge ICC award commences with notification of signed original award

08.11.2018 – Case Number: 4A_40/2018 (26 September 2018)

The Swiss Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to an International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) award for an alleged violation of the right to be heard. In doing so, it confirmed that the 30-day time limit under Article 100 of the Swiss Supreme Court Act to challenge an award commences with the notification of the signed original arbitral award and not with the advance courtesy electronic copy sent by the ICC. The court reiterated its case law concerning the notification of awards by facsimile and applied the same reasoning to (advance) copies of awards by email.
