In the process of recognition of award of the foreign arbitration the task of the court is to establish whether the foreign arbitration court has not acted outside its competence and whether the procedural guarantees of the parties connected with adjudication of the case orally in the court proceedings were observed.

Dispute on existence of the arbitration agreement between the parties is examined in the course of the arbitration proceedings; therefore in the court of general jurisdiction in the course of recognition of the arbitration award the party to the proceedings cannot object that he was not a party to the arbitration agreement (Clause 1 of the Article 5 of the European Convention on International Commercial Arbitration).
