7.2
Does the law in your jurisdiction permit the joinder of additional parties to an arbitration which has already commenced?
 
Czech Republic
The law includes no provisions in this regard. The expert view is that joinder of third parties would violate a fundamental principle of arbitration: the confidentiality of the arbitration proceedings. The case law permits only joinder of interveners, as this does not violate this principle too severely.
