In cases of urgency, including those involving perishable or seasonal goods, or services that
rapidly lose their trade value, the arbitration panel and the Parties shall make every effort to
accelerate the proceedings to the greatest extent possible. The arbitration panel shall aim at
issuing an interim report to the Parties within 75 days of the establishment of the arbitration
panel, and a final report within 15 days of the interim report. Upon request of a Party, the
arbitration panel shall make a preliminary ruling within 10 days of the request on whether it
deems the case to be urgent.
