Brazil - LAW N0 9.307 of 23 September 1996

Chapter II. - The Arbitration Agreement and Its Effects

Article 7

If there is an arbitration clause but resistance as to the commencement of the arbitral proceedings, the interested party may request the Court to summon the other party to appear in Court so that the submission to arbitration may be signed; the Judge shall order a special hearing for this purpose.

First Paragraph: The plaintiff shall specify, in detail, the subject matter of the arbitration, attaching to its motion the document containing the arbitration clause.

Second Paragraph: If the parties attend the hearing, the Judge shall first try to conciliate their dispute. If he does not succeed, the Judge shall try to persuade them to sign, by mutual agreement, the submission to arbitration.

Third Paragraph: If the parties disagree on the terms of the submission to arbitration, the Judge, after hearing the defendant, shall decide on the contents thereof, either at the same hearing or within ten days, in accordance with the provisions of the arbitration clause, and taking account of the provisions of Articles 10 and 21, second paragraph, of this Law.

Fourth Paragraph: If the arbitration clause fails to provide for the appointment of arbitrators, the Judge, after hearing the parties, shall rule thereon, being allowed to appoint a sole arbitrator to decide the dispute.

Fifth Paragraph: If the plaintiff, without good cause, fails to attend the hearing designated for the drafting of the submission to arbitration, the case will be terminated without judgment on the merits.

Sixth Paragraph: If the defendant fails to attend the hearing, the Judge shall have the authority, after hearing the plaintiff, to establish the contents of the submission to arbitration, and to appoint a sole arbitrator.

Seventh Paragraph: The judgment granting the motion shall have the force of a submission to arbitration.
