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?
 
Hungary
The Arbitration Act is silent on consolidation. However, pursuant to the procedural rules of the Arbitration Court attached to the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, separate arbitrations may be consolidated into a single arbitration if all parties involved so request or agree thereto. In such case, the arbitrations are consolidated into the proceeding commenced first.

Does the law in your jurisdiction permit the joinder of additional parties to an arbitration which has already commenced?
 
Hungary
A person who is not party to the arbitration may participate in the proceedings as a party if the claim can be resolved only with its participation and if it submits a written a statement regarding its acceptance of the jurisdiction of the tribunal.

In addition, upon the request of any party, the tribunal will inform a person with a legal interest of the outcome of the arbitration proceedings on intervention. The intervener may submit evidence and participate in the hearing and in inspection procedures.
