Answer ... There are no such restrictions; a party to an arbitration agreement can be any natural or legal person, including the Slovenian state and other persons of public law.
Answer ... Several procedural rules stipulate the actions that a party is required to undertake, but the Arbitration Act generally provides for default rules should a party fail to act accordingly. For example:
- if the parties fail to agree on a sole arbitrator, either party may request the court to make the appointment; and
- if the plaintiff fails to file its statement of claims by the prescribed deadline, the tribunal will stop the proceedings.
Answer ... There are no such provisions in the Arbitration Act. Such matter, if not regulated in an agreed set of arbitration rules, will thus be subject to the tribunal’s determination.
