The Taiwan Arbitration Act recognizes the doctrine of party autonomy. In the absence of an agreement on the procedural rules governing the arbitration, the arbitral tribunal shall first apply the Taiwan Arbitration Act. If the Act is silent on a procedural matter, the arbitral tribunal may adopt the Taiwan Code of Civil Procedure mutatis mutandis or other rules of procedure that it deems proper.

Some of you do not have a Great Legal Mind like I do, so I'll explain what "mutatis mutandis" is. It is what you get when a praying mantis is subjected to huge amounts of gamma radiation, resulting in significant changes to the insect's genetic makeup.
