Singapore High Court upholds arbitral award

In DDI v DDJ [2024] SGHC 68 the Singapore High Court dismissed an application to set aside an arbitration award under Section 48 of the Singapore Arbitration Act 2001. The decision focussed – inter alia - on the question under what circumstances an arbitrator’s conduct will be considered as a breach of the rules of natural justice.

The High Court confirmed that to set aside an award, a party must demonstrate a meaningful breach of natural justice that has caused prejudice. I.e. any breach, even if proven, must have caused actual prejudice to the applicant.

This decision reaffirms the high threshold for setting aside an arbitral award due to an alleged breach of natural justice.
