In relating to enforcement of arbitration awards there are a principal source of law: "Federal Arbitration Act" which is adopted in 1925.Articles 9-14 of this statute contains provisions about enforcement and obstacles to arbitration awards. Enforcement of arbitral awards requires the judicial procedures and supervisions in United States. In accordance with this law the party who is seeking for enforcement must file a motion (confirmation request) and bring necessary documents to the appropriate court during one year. Arbitration awards are not enforceable without judicial confirmation. Vacation, modification and correction of arbitral awards have limitative statutory grounds which are stipulated in the law.
