Singapore is a signatory to the 1958 New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Arbitration Awards (New York Convention), which has been enacted into Singaporean law. The laws relating to the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards substantially reflect the provisions of the New York Convention.
Foreign arbitral awards are presumed to be enforceable upon application to the High Court of Singapore unless one of the reasons for refusal can be made out by the respondent. A foreign arbitral award may then be enforced as if it was a decision of the High Court.
Domestic arbitral awards, like foreign arbitral awards, may be enforced as if it was a decision of the High Court.
