Sino Channel Asia Ltd v Dana Shipping & Trading PTE Singapore and another

Arbitration – Award. The correct inference to be drawn from the actual circumstances of the relationship between the charterer and BX, a Chinese company, was that BX did have implied actual authority to accept service of the notice of arbitration on behalf of the charterer and the arbitration was therefore valid. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division accordingly allowed the appeal of the shipping company against the dismissal of an arbitration award.
