Haven Insurance Company Ltd v EUI Ltd (trading as Elephant Insurance)

Arbitration – Commencement. In a time-bar dispute, arising from the respondent insurer's failure to submit its notice of appeal against the decision of the technical committee within the 30 day time limit prescribed by the Motor Insurers Bureau, the judge had not erred in holding that it would be just to extend time to allow the respondent insurer to bring arbitral proceedings pursuant to s 12(3)(a) of the Arbitration Act 1996. Accordingly the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the appellant insurer's appeal.
