At its twenty-eighth session (Vienna, 2-26 May 1995), the Commission decided to undertake a survey with the aim of monitoring the implementation in national laws of the New York Convention and of considering the procedural mechanisms that various States have put in place to make the Convention operative. The Secretariat of UNCITRAL, in cooperation with the Arbitration Committee of the International Bar Association, prepared a questionnaire circulated to States parties to the Convention. The information on the procedural framework in which the Convention operates would enable the Commission to consider any further action it might take to improve the functioning of the Convention and would contribute to increasing awareness of its application.
A synthesis in respect of the survey was presented by the Secretariat of UNCITRAL at the forty-first session (New York, 16 June-3 July 2008) of the Commission covering implementation of the New York Convention by States, its interpretation and application, based on replies received from 108 States parties to the New York Convention ( A/CN.9/656 and A/CN.9/656/Add.1).
At its forty-first session, the Commission requested the Secretariat to publish on the UNCITRAL website a compilation of information collected during the survey, in the language in which it was received, and urged States to provide the Secretariat with accurate information to ensure that the data published on the UNCITRAL website remains up to date. Since the information was provided as part of a general survey on the New York Convention, the compilation is only indicative of procedural mechanisms that were made known to the UNCITRAL Secretariat.
