(a) An arbitrator shall make a record of an award. Such record should set forth findings of fact and conclusions of law that support the award. The record must be signed or otherwise authenticated by any arbitrator who concurs with the award. The arbitrator or the arbitration organization shall give notice of the award, including a copy of the award, to each party to the arbitration proceeding.
(b) An award must be made within the time specified by the agreement to arbitrate or, if not specified therein, within the time ordered by the court. The court may extend, or the parties to the arbitration proceeding may agree in a record to extend, the time. The court or the parties may do so within or after the time specified or ordered. A party waives any objection that an award was not timely made unless the party gives notice of the objection to the arbitrator before receiving notice of the award.
(c) This section does not apply to an arbitration conducted or administered by a self-regulatory organization as defined by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U. S.C. §78C), the Commodity Exchange Act (7 U. S. C. §1, et seq.) or regulations adopted under those acts.
