Arbitration agreements occasionally specify that arbitrations conducted pursuant to those agreements will be governed by the Federal Arbitration act. The provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act are found at 9 U.S.C. 1 et seq.

Conducting arbitrations pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act does not in and of itself automatically confer jurisdiction upon federal courts over applications to confirm, or vacate, an arbitration award. Independent grounds for federal jurisdiction must exist before a federal court will consider the matter. One independent ground, for example, might be where the requirements for diversity of citizenship are satisfied. Alternatively, proceedings to confirm or vacate awards issued pursuant to New Jersey (or any state) arbitration statutes can be held in federal court when independent grounds for federal jurisdiction exist. These can be the same independent grounds for when the arbitration is conducted pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act.
