The interim protection for legal rights is one of the methods of judicial protection that avoids the risk of delay in the implementation of the law and in providing objective protection for these rights and centers, as well as to preserve them from this risk by taking urgent, temporary or conservative measures by issuing judgments or orders. Therefore, the aim of this research is to answer the following questions: does the arbitrator have the right to consider interim requests to achieve this protection, and if yes what is the legal base of this authority? What are the authorities of the arbitrator in terms of comparative law and the UAE law No. 6 for 2018?

These questions are investigated in this study in details which starts with the definition of interim relief and methods of their protection (first part). The second part examines the authorities of the arbitrator to issue interim decisions, while the last part focuses the scope of the authority of the arbitrator to ensure interim protection and the extent to which litigants may agree to exclude the jurisdiction of the interim relief of formal courts.
