Arbitrators often make a number of decisions on the administration of the arbitration during the course of the proceedings. Procedural decisions should be documented in writing, often in the form of procedural orders, in order to eliminate any ambiguity, emphasise the significance of compliance, and set them apart from awards. Procedural orders should always be written with the words "Procedural Order" in the title, be numbered in order, commencing with "Procedural Order No. 1," and be signed and dated. Procedural order, which, in contrary to an award, cannot be contested in court. Procedural orders have historically been thought of as modest nonconclusive procedural choices that won't significantly affect the arbitration's conclusion. The courts' perception that some procedural orders are binding documents with significant implications for the result and conduct of the arbitration process has caused a significant shift in the way that procedural orders are traditionally understood during the past years. In this paper an attempt has been made to understand what procedural orders are, difference between Arbitral awards and Procedural orders, difference between procedural order and party agreement and amendment of procedural orders
