Chapter III. - Arbitrators

Article 13

Any legally capable individual, trusted by the parties, may act as an arbitrator.

First Paragraph: The parties shall appoint one or more arbitrators, always in an odd number, being also able to appoint their respective alternates.

Second Paragraph: If the parties appoint an even number of arbitrators, the latter are authorized immediately to nominate another arbitrator. In case of disagreement thereon, the parties shall request the State Court originally competent to decide the case, to appoint such arbitrator, following as much as possible the procedure foreseen in Article 7 of this Law.

Third Paragraph: The parties may, by mutual agreement, define the rules for the appointment of arbitrators, or adopt the rules of an arbitral institution or specialized entity.

Fourth Paragraph: If several arbitrators are appointed, these will select, by majority vote, the President of the arbitral tribunal. Failing consensus, the eldest member shall become the President.

Fifth Paragraph: The sole arbitrator or the President of the arbitral tribunal, if he deems it necessary, may designate a secretary, who could also be one of the other arbitrators.

Sixth Paragraph: In performing his duty, the arbitrator shall behave in an impartial, independent, competent, diligent and discreet manner.

Seventh Paragraph: The sole arbitrator or the arbitral tribunal may order the parties to advance funds to cover expenses and actions it may deem necessary.
