On other occasions the arbitration clause does not provide expressly for an expedited arbitration procedure, but neither does it prohibit that. If the parties agree, then an expedited arbitration procedure for the arbitration can be directed by the arbitrator.

An expedited arbitration procedure will usually be agreed at the preliminary, or first, meeting and result in a procedural order covering the entire duration of the expedited arbitration from exchange of written submissions (pleadings) up to the date of the hearing and publication of the award.
