What is an arbitration agreement?

An arbitration agreement is a term that is often included in international commercial contracts when the contracting parties agree not to choose the court as the place to settle disputes in the performance of the contract.

An arbitration agreement is an agreement between the parties to choose an arbitrator as the agency to settle commercial disputes, either in a provision in a contract or a separate document. An arbitration agreement exists independently of the contract, has no binding value when it is absent or expires, cannot be enforced, or is not applicable.
