Appointment of arbitrator — Challenge to appointment of arbitrator

The ability of parties to influence the constitution of their arbitral tribunal is an important manifestation of party autonomy in international arbitration. This chapter first discusses the means by which parties can do so pursuant to Rules 9 to 13. Specifically, Rule 9 covers the number and appointment of arbitrators; Rule 10 provides a default procedure for the nomination and appointment of a sole arbitrator should the parties fail to agree on a candidate; Rule 11 discusses the appointment of arbitrators; Rule 12 covers the multi-party appointment of arbitrator(s); and Rule 13 deals with the qualifications of arbitrators. The chapter then considers the procedures for, and consequences of, a party challenging an appointed arbitrator under Rules 14 to 18.
