This article presents a commentary on recent arbitration-related decisions by the Austrian Supreme Court. It focuses on a contentious Supreme Court decision on Article IV of the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of 1958 (“New York Convention”). Other topics in the overview section address questions such as, under what conditions arbitration agreements can be extended to third parties, whether certain standard arbitration clauses would cover extra-contractual claims, whether an unsuccessful challenge of an arbitrator may form a ground for setting aside an award and whether Austrian arbitration-related statutory consumer protection provisions apply also to arbitrations conducted abroad.
