Serious irregularity: waiver of right to appeal

Section 73(1) of the Arbitration Act 1996 removes by waiver the right of a party to appeal against an award on the grounds of serious irregularity if that party was or should have been aware of the problem but continued the arbitration proceedings without raising that objection.
