Most diligent party:

"Article 4

1. If the chairman of the arbitral tribunal has not been designated within two months of the appointment of the second arbitrator, the Secretary-General of the United Nations shall, at the request of the most diligent Party, designate him within a further two months' period. "

ref. http://www.intfish.net/treaties/barcelona1976.htm

E.g. "If the parties are unable to agree, the matter may be referred by the more diligent party for arbitration by a recognised professional body such as the Arbitration Committee of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting."
