Swedish Arbitration Portal: Excess of mandate and Procedural error

In a decision recently posted on the Swedish Arbitration Portal a party sought to set aside an award alleging, among others, that by disregarding evidence the tribunal exceeded its mandate and incurred in a procedural error

It was undisputed that the evidence had been presented to the tribunal; yet the Svea Court of Appeal found that the fact that a tribunal in its review and evaluation of the evidence does not attach relevance to it, or even disregards it, forms part of the decisions on the merits and can thus not constitute excess of mandate or procedural error.
