35 .         Recognition and enforcement (cf. Model Law Art 35)

        (1)         An arbitral award, irrespective of the State or Territory in which it was made, is to be recognised in this State as binding and, on application in writing to the Court, is to be enforced subject to the provisions of this section and section 36.

        (2)         The party relying on an award or applying for its enforcement must supply the original award or a copy of the original award.

        (3)         If the award is not made in English, the Court may request the party to supply a translation of it into English.

        Note for this section:

                So much of Art 35(2) of the Model Law as provides for the translation of an award that is not in the official language of the enforcing State has been modified.
