Should parties involved in dispute resolution proceedings come across any technical problems, they can have recourse to the CEPANI Rules for technical expert investigations.
Such a technical expert investigation can help reach a settlement between the parties, or it can provide them with reliable and verified findings. If necessary, the parties may then use these findings in any later legal proceedings or arbitration.
In principal, the findings and conclusions of the expert are binding on the parties. They may however agree otherwise in advance and decide to treat the conclusions of the expert as being purely advisory and non-binding.
