Types of Interim Measures

The types of interim measures can include

  • any temporary measure, whether in the form of an award or in another form, by which, at any time prior to the issuance of the award by which the dispute is finally decided, the arbitral tribunal orders a party to:
    • maintain or restore the status quo pending determination of the dispute, or
    • take action that would prevent, or refrain from taking action that is likely to cause, current or imminent harm or prejudice to the arbitral process itself, or
    • provide a means of preserving assets out of which a subsequent award may be satisfied, or
    • preserve evidence that may be relevant and material to the resolution of the dispute.

This can, include without limitation, the arbitral tribunal may make orders with respect to any of the following:

  • discovery of documents and interrogatories,
  • giving of evidence by affidavit,
  • the inspection of any property which is or forms part of the subject-matter of the dispute,
  • the taking of photographs of any property which is or forms part of the subject-matter of the dispute,
  • samples to be taken from, or any observation to be made of or experiment conducted on, any property which is or forms part of the subject-matter of the dispute,
  • dividing, recording and strictly enforcing the time allocated for a hearing between the parties (a “stop clock” arbitration)
