82. The president, the vice-president responsible for the division or any member designated by either shall determine which members are to take part in each sitting.
The president may, where he considers it expedient in view of the complexity of a case or importance of a matter, form a panel comprising a greater number of members than that provided for in Chapter II, but not exceeding five.
He may also, where he considers it necessary in order to avoid delays in the hearing of proceedings by the Tribunal, form a panel of only one member to hear and determine the proceedings he determines and which, by reason of their nature and the facts, do not raise particular difficulties and do not require a second expert opinion.
In all cases, one member only is called to sit where measures relating to the management of proceedings or matters incidental thereto are to be determined.
Mention of the decisions of the president modifying the panels formed under Chapter II shall be made in the annual report.
