With the introduction of mandatory exequatur procedure, the new Slovenian Arbitration act has substantially reformed the system of enforcement of domestic arbitral awards. Also provisions concerning enforcement of protective and interim measures, adopted in domestic and foreign arbitrations are new. In regard to recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards, the changes are not so substantial, since the New York Convention has been in force in Slovenia already before. The author discusses the grounds for refusal of exequatur as well as the procedural issues. Thereby it is assessed not only in view of the statutory regulation but foremost in the view of the existing case-law whether Slovenia is an "arbitration friendly" jurisdiction.
