According to Article 56 of the Arbitration Rules of the Arbitration Court at the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry (the ‘Tribunal’);  ‘the award of the Tribunal shall enter into force on the date of making the award.  The award of the Tribunal shall be final and binding on the parties and is not subject to appeal.
