No. XIII.2.4 - Kompetenz-Kompetenz; Separability of the arbitration clause
(a) The arbitral tribunal may rule on its own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence or validity of the arbitration agreement ("Kompetenz-Kompetenz").
(b) A plea that the arbitral tribunal does not have jurisdiction shall be raised not later than the submission of the statement of defence. A party is not precluded from raising such a plea by the fact that he has appointed, or participated in the appointment of, an arbitrator.
(c) The invalidity of the main contract does not automatically extend to the arbitration clause contained therein unless it is proven that the arbitration agreement itself is vitiated by fraud, or initial lack of consent (Principle of Separability).
