Law:[WIPO] - Wipo Expedited Arbitration Rules

Article 14

(a) The Tribunal shall consist of a sole arbitrator, who shall be appointed jointly by the parties.

(b) If the appointment of the sole arbitrator is not made within 15 days after the commencement of the arbitration, the sole arbitrator shall be appointed by the Center."

8. In Article 25 of the WIPO Arbitration Rules, the words "within 15 days" are replaced by the words "within 7 days."

9. Articles 41(a) and 42(a) of the WIPO Arbitration Rules are deleted.

10. Article 53(b) of the WIPO Arbitration Rules is replaced by the following:

(b) "If a hearing is held, it shall be convened within 30 days after the receipt by the Claimant of the Answer to the Request and the Statement of Defense. The Tribunal shall give the parties adequate advance notice of the date, time and place of the hearing. Except in exceptional circumstances, hearings may not exceed three days. Each party shall be expected to bring to the hearing such persons as necessary to adequately inform the Tribunal of the dispute."

11. The following paragraph is added to Article 53 of the WIPO Arbitration Rules:

(e) "Within such short period of time after the hearing as is agreed by the parties or, in the absence of such agreement, determined by the Tribunal, each party may communicate to the Tribunal and to the other party a post-hearing brief."

Consolidated Text

A consolidated text of the WIPO Expedited Arbitration Rules may be obtained from the WIPO Arbitration Center. In that text, two conventions have been followed:

(i) Provisions that represent modifications of the WIPO Arbitration Rules are printed in bold italics .

(ii) Where the modifications to the WIPO Arbitration Rules have resulted in the deletion of Articles or paragraphs, the number or letter of the deleted Article or paragraph has been retained accompanied by the annotation [Article [paragraph] not used]. This has been done in order to retain the correspondence between the numbers of Articles in the WIPO Arbitration Rules and in the WIPO Expedited Arbitration Rules.

Schedule of Fees

The Fees of the Center are the same as for an arbitration under the WIPO Arbitration Rules.

The arbitrator's fees are determined in the same way as the fees of an arbitrator in an arbitration under the WIPO Arbitration Rules.
