On 16 March 2015 the Brazilian President signed the bill enacting the new Code of Civil Procedure. The new Code will make some changes with respect  to arbitration, the main being the carta arbitral, which allows arbitrators to request adoption of  enforcement measures directly from the courts, such as the deposition of uncooperative witnesses.  The new Code also provides for the confidentiality of legal proceedings related to arbitration if  the parties establish that the arbitral proceedings were held in confidentiality.
