  • French court rules that mandatory expert determination provisions do not render arbitration clauses inapplicable 20/05/2019 16:41

    The arbitral tribunal's power to determine its jurisdiction (known as 'compétence-compétence') is a fundamental principle of French arbitration law. Pursuant to Article 1465 of the French Civil Procedure Code, "[t]he arbitral tribunal has exclusive jurisdiction to determine challenges to its jurisdiction".(1) Thus, arbitrators have the exclusive power to determine the scope of their jurisdictional powers (and their validity), including with respect to the subject matter of disputes covered by an arbitration agreement. The practical consequence of this exclusivity is that a court seised of a dispute that is subject to an arbitration agreement must decline jurisdiction. That is unless, as set out in Article 1448 of the Civil Procedure Code, an arbitral tribunal has not yet been seised of the dispute and the arbitration agreement is "manifestly void or manifestly inapplicable".
