1. The obligation to provide reasons in the arbitral award is a condition of form and not of substance, which excludes any review by the annulment court of the intrinsic value of the reasoning.
2. The expiration of the time-limit fixed by the parties for the rendering of the award does not automatically lead to the termination of the arbitrators’ mission within the meaning of Article 1713 § 2 B.J.C., as this provision only applies to the expiration of a time limit set by the President of the Court of First Instance.
3. The irregularity resulting from the fact that the award was rendered after the expiry of the time limit fixed by the parties does not result in the annulment of the award if the claimant cannot establish that it had an impact on the award (Article 1717 § 3, a) v) B.J.C).b-Arbitra | Belgian Review of Arbitration
