SUMMARY OF U.S. ARBITRATION LAW
Deborah Enix-Ross and David W. Rivkin
(U.S. Members of the NAFTA Advisory Committee on Private Commercial Disputes)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A. Federal Arbitration Act
The cornerstone of United States arbitration law is the Federal Arbitration Act (the "FAA").(1) Congress enacted the FAA in 1925 to "revers[e] centuries of judicial hostility to arbitration agreements . . . by plac[ing] arbitration agreements 'upon the same footing as other contracts.'"(2) It provides that written arbitration agreements in contracts involving maritime, interstate, or international commercial transactions shall be "valid, irrevocable, and enforceable, save upon such grounds as exist at law or in equity for the revocation of any contract."(3) The FAA applies to all contracts that in fact involved interstate commerce, whether or not the parties contemplated that the transaction would involve interstate commerce.(4) Because the interstate commerce power of Congress has been read broadly, the FAA applies to a vast majority of contracts, and it is to be applied even in state courts.(5)
The FAA ensures that agreements to arbitrate are enforced by requiring courts to compel arbitration if a party to an arbitration agreement refuses to arbitrate,(6) and to stay court proceedings where a valid arbitration agreement exists.(7) The FAA requires the rigorous enforcement of agreements to arbitrate by their terms.(8) Thus, U.S. courts have understood the FAA to establish a national policy favoring arbitration.(9)

Although the FAA does not supply detailed provisions of arbitral procedure, the FAA does govern certain procedural issues providing an overall structure conducive to arbitration and to arbitrator and party autonomy. For example, the FAA provides that a court can appoint an arbitrator if the agreement to arbitrate does not provide a method of appointment or if the parties have not named an arbitrator for any other reason.(10) It also gives arbitral tribunals the authority to compel attendance of witnesses at hearings and to order production of documents.(11) Finally, the FAA empowers courts to enforce arbitrators' subpoenas if necessary.(12)

U.S. courts are granted broad authority to confirm or enforce arbitral awards.(13) Generally, courts can only vacate the award on grounds of fraud, partiality or corruption in the arbitrators, arbitrator misconduct or lack of jurisdiction.(14) Moreover, courts can modify or correct an arbitral award if they find a miscalculation or mistake in description, if the arbitrators have made an award on a matter not submitted to them, or if the form of the award is incorrect.(15)

More importantly, in the context of the enforcement of international arbitral agreements and awards, chapters 2 and 3 of the FAA implement, respectively, the United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of 1958 (the "New York Convention") and the 1975 Inter-American Convention on International Commercial Arbitration (the "Panama Convention"). These Conventions require Contracting States to compel arbitration under a valid arbitration agreement that falls within their scope and to enforce foreign arbitral awards rendered in countries that are signatories to the convention. The Conventions provide limited defenses to such enforcement, and the U.S. courts have construed these defenses narrowly. Thus, these conventions have increased the effectiveness of international arbitration by easing efforts to enforce international agreements to arbitrate as well as properly rendered international arbitral awards.(16)

If both the New York and Panama Convention apply to an arbitration, Section 305 of the FAA provides that the Panama Convention shall automatically apply "[i]f a majority of the parties to the arbitration agreement are citizens of a state or states that have ratified or acceded to the Inter-American Convention and are member states of the Organization of American States."(17)

Por eso la traducción no sería Ley sino Acta, ya que en todos los casos y espíritu de la ley americana, las actas son la piedras angulares de las leyes.

Espero que te sirva, un gran abrazo y suerte!!!!!
