After the constitution of the arbitral tribunal, the request (application for interim relief) must be submitted to the president of the arbitral tribunal or to the sole arbitrator.
Prior to the constitution of the arbitral tribunal, the request for interim relief must be submitted to the emergency arbitrator designated by the time schedule or, in case of hindrance, to the alternate arbitrator.
In either case, a copy of the request must be submitted to the DIS.
If the main proceedings have not yet been initiated, the applicant must pay an amount of 1.000 € to the DIS upon filing of the application. This amount covers the DIS Administrative Fees as well as a preliminary advance for the arbitrator’s fees. Proof of payment must be sent together with the application.
A decision on the request for interim relief may be given without an oral hearing or, in special circumstances, without giving prior notice or receiving comments from the other party.
