Mediation Protocol

The Protocol has been drafted to promote and encourage the negotiated settlement and early, cost effective resolution of disputes by mediation. Primarily however, the Protocol provides guidance as to the rights and obligations of all participants under the Tribunal’s fully administered mediation service.

The Protocol is a necessary and important component of our fully administered mediation service because mediation, unlike adjudication, is consensual and not supported or underpinned by legislation.

The Protocol is incorporated into the Tribunal’s Mediation process by operation of clause 1 of the Agreement to Mediate.
