The law concerning the power of arbitral tribunals to grant interim remedies is governed in Qatar by Article 17 of Law No 2 of 2017 Promulgating the Civil and Commercial Arbitration Law (the Arbitration Law).
The old arbitration law contained in Articles 190–210 of the Civil and Commercial Code of Procedure (Law No 13 of 1990) (the CCPC) did not make express provision for the tribunal to grant interim or preliminary relief to parties. However, the Arbitration Law gives the tribunal full authority to issue provisional measures or interim awards. The tribunal is also empowered to order the following measures for the purpose of preventing irreparable harm:
maintaining or restoring the status quo pending determination of the dispute
adopting a measure to prevent the occurrence of current or imminent damage, or that would prejudice the Arbitration process itself, or to prevent the adoption of procedures that may possibly result in such damage or prejudice
providing a means of preserving the assets by means of which later awards may be executed, and
