Consolidation and third parties
7.1
Does the law in your jurisdiction permit consolidation of separate arbitrations into a single arbitration proceeding? Are there any conditions which apply to consolidation?
 
Bahrain
Bahraini law does not prohibit the consolidation of arbitration proceedings. Subject to the procedural rules agreed between the parties or determined by the tribunal, separate arbitration proceedings may therefore be consolidated, either with the consent of the parties or where the proceedings arise from the same arbitration agreement or involve the same parties.

7.2
Does the law in your jurisdiction permit the joinder of additional parties to an arbitration which has already commenced?
 
Bahrain
Bahraini law does not prohibit the joinder of additional parties to arbitration proceedings. Subject to the procedural rules agreed between the parties or determined by the tribunal, third parties may therefore be joined to arbitration proceedings. It is generally necessary for them to consent to this.

7.3
Does an arbitration agreement bind assignees or other third parties?
 
Bahrain
An arbitration agreement or award is binding only on the parties and the tribunal therefore has limited scope to assume jurisdiction over third parties.
