Hogan Lovells review the 29 December 2017 judicial interpretations published by the Supreme People’s Court of China (both of which came into force on 1 January 2018). The authors observe that both Interpretations seek to clarify and provide consistency to the judicial review process between domestic, foreign-related and foreign arbitrations in China and have the effect of guiding and regulating the lower Chinese courts’ judicial review process and are considered to be part of the SPC’s efforts to be seen as pro-arbitration.
