Herbert Smith Freehills review the English Commercial Court’s March 2018 decision, where the key issue was whether the 28 day statutory period for appeal commenced on the date of the original award or the date of the correction of the award (to remedy clerical errors pursuant to s57(3) of the Act). The Court dismissed the application of appeal under s69 of the English Arbitration Act 1996 on the ground that the application was not made within the statutory time period provided and there was no reason to grant an extension to that period.
