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?
 
Slovakia
The Arbitration Act includes no provisions on the consolidation of separate arbitration into a single arbitration proceeding. However, this is regulated by the Civil Proceedings Code for Adversarial Proceedings, which also applies to the Arbitration Act. The arbitral tribunal may join two or more arbitral proceedings started before the same tribunal and involving the same parties or claims arising from the same transaction or event.

The Arbitration Act includes no provisions on joinder of additional parties to an arbitration which has already been commenced. However, this is regulated by the Civil Proceedings Code for Adversarial Proceedings, which also applies to the Arbitration Act and whose provisions are also followed in practice in the case of arbitration proceedings. A third party may intervene upon the request of one of the parties or of the tribunal, and with the consent of the tribunal.
