Standards & Mediator Accreditation

Australian National Mediator Accreditation Standards

The Australian Mediation Association strongly supports and is committed to the application and implementation of the Australian National Mediator Standards. The Association is a Recognised Mediator Accreditation Body (RMAB) under the standards and acts to maintain and further develop the national mediation accreditation scheme.

We undertake to have an ongoing role in Standards development and the definition and any extension of the recognition process into the future.

The Australian National Mediator Standards apply to any person who voluntarily seeks to be accredited under the National Mediator Accreditation System (‘the system’) to act as a mediator and assist two or more participants to manage, settle or resolve disputes or to form a future plan of action through a process of mediation.

The Approval Standards

  1. Specify requirements for mediators seeking to obtain approval under the voluntary national accreditation system; and
  2. Define minimum qualifications and training; and
  3. Assist in informing participants, prospective participants and others what qualifications and competencies can be expected of mediators.

As a condition of ongoing approval, mediators must comply with the Practice Standards and seek re-approval in accordance with the Approval Standards.

The Approval Standards and Practice Standards can be accessed Here.
