3. In the absence of provisions applicable to a particular case, the tribunal or the Tribunal may remedy the inadequacy by any procedure compatible with law or with its rules of procedure.
These Rules of procedure are intended to render effective the substantive law and to ensure that it is carried out, and failing a provision to the contrary, failure to observe the rules which are not of public order can only affect a proceeding if the defect has not been remedied when it was possible to do so. The provisions of these Rules must be interpreted the one by the other, and, so far as possible, in such a way as to facilitate rather than to delay or to end prematurely the normal advancement of hearings.
