Access an extensive database showing previous published arbitration awards

Members have access to our Published Awards service which provides an insight into previous disputes arising from trade conducted under FOSFA terms. The database is a valuable training resource and reference tool for traders, execution department staff, case handlers and individuals who are thinking of becoming arbitrators. They cover a wide range of issues such as demurrage, force majeure, quality and condition and non-fulfilment claims.

The database contains nearly 500 awards, including second tier (appeal) outcomes.
