Eines der grundlegenden Prinzipien eines fairen Verfahrens ist das Prinzip der Rechtssicherheit, d. h. die Möglichkeit der Parteien, im voraus die Grundregeln eines Verfahrens feststellen zu können. Die Bestellung eines dritten Prüfers ohne eine Grundlage in den VEP oder den Ausführungsbestimmungen ist als schwerwiegender Verfahrensfehler zu beurteilen.
