Answer ... (a) Procedure, including evidence?
The arbitral tribunal may hear witnesses, examine documents and make inspections, as well as examine any other necessary evidence. However, it may not apply coercive measures.
Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the arbitral tribunal may also:
appoint one or more experts to provide a report; and
- require a party to give the expert any relevant information or to produce documents.
(b) Interim relief?
Except as otherwise agreed by the parties, the tribunal may, at the request of a party which has substantiated its claim, grant such interim measures as it considers appropriate considering the matter at issue. When issuing a decision in this regard, the tribunal may make enforcement of an order to grant an interim measure contingent on the provision of appropriate security.
At the request of a party, the tribunal may also vary or set aside an order issued.
(c) Parties which do not comply with its orders?
The tribunal may not apply any coercive measures.
(d) Issuing partial final awards?
While the courts may issue partial judgments and preliminary verdicts, the situation is different in ad hoc arbitration, where the parties themselves determine the rules of conduct. The doctrine assumes that if the parties have not explicitly excluded this option, an ad hoc arbitration court may also make a partial or initial judgment where this is justified by the circumstances of the case. Each party has the right to submit a request for a partial or initial judgment to the tribunal, which alone has the power to decide whether such request should be granted.
(e) The remedies it can grant in a final award?
Generally, the arbitration award should include the determination of the arbitration agreement on the basis of which the verdict was handed down, and the parties’ and arbitrators’ designation, as well as the date and place of its publication.
An arbitration award should also include a decision on the costs of the proceedings (ie, all administrative fees, arbitration fees, remuneration of arbitrators and experts, costs of legal representation and any other costs incurred by the parties). The obligation to adjudicate in the award on the costs of the arbitration proceedings and the extent to which these costs are to be allocated between the parties is highlighted in the regulations of leading permanent arbitration courts.
The regulations do not specify whether the arbitral tribunal may grant the remedies in a final award.
The tribunal may award interest on the amount awarded in the judgment.
