(1) Before deciding on the number of arbitrators to be appointed, HKIAC shall allow the other party or parties to the arbitration agreement to serve on HKIAC brief written reasons in support of their contention as to the number of arbitrators appropriate for their dispute. Where no such reasons are served on HKIAC within 14 days of the party being served under rule 8(2), HKIAC may proceed with the decision. (17 of 2010 s. 112)
(2) HKIAC may request further information from the parties which they shall supply within 14 days of such request. Where a party fails or refuses to supply the information within the specified time, HKIAC may make a decision on the basis of the information it has.
These Rules were originally made under the Arbitration Ordinance (Cap 341). Though that Ordinance was repealed, these Rules continue in force so far as it is not inconsistent with the Arbitration Ordinance (Cap 609) and have the like effect for all purposes as if made under Cap 609. (See section 110 of Cap 609)
