LCIA Arbitration Rules
(adopted to take effect from 1 January 1985)

Article 13 - Additional Powers of the Tribunal

13.1 Unless the parties at any time agree otherwise. and subject to any mandatory limitations of any applicable law. the Tribunal shall have the power, on the application of any party or of its own motion, but in either case only after giving the parties a proper opportunity to state their views, to:

(a) determine what are the rules of law governing or applicable to any contract, or arbitration agreement or issue between the parties;

(b) order the correction of any such contract or arbitration agreement, but only to the extent required to rectify any mistake which it determines to be common to all the parties and then only if and to the extent to which the rules of law governing or applicable to the contract permit such correction;

(c) allow other parties to be joined in the arbitration with their express consent, and make a single final award determining all disputes between them;

(d) allow any party, upon such terms (as to costs and otherwise) as it shall determine, to amend claims or counterclaims;

(e) extend or abbreviate any time limits provided by these Rules or by its directions;

(f) conduct such enquiries as may appear to the Tribunal to be necessary or expedient;

(g) order the parties to make any property or thing available for inspection, in their presence, by the Tribunal or any expert;

(h) order the preservation, storage, sale or other disposal of any property or thing under the control of any party;

(i) order any party to produce to the Tribunal, and to the other parties for inspection, and to supply copies of, any documents or classes of documents in their possession or power which the Tribunal determines to be relevant.

13.2 By agreeing to arbitration under these Rules the parties shall be taken to have agreed to apply only to the Tribunal, and not to any court of law or other judicial authority, for an order under paragraphs (g), (h) or (i) of Article 13.1.
