Mediator Approval Requirements

Approval Requirements for Mediators – Recognised Mediator Accreditation Body (RMAB)

MediatorAs a RMAB, the Association’s role in the system is that of the accreditation component of the national mediation accreditation scheme. We aim to ensure that the Standards and scheme operate in an effective, efficient, satisfactory and fair manner.

A mediator manages processes aimed at maximising the participants’ own decision making. The mediator must have personal qualities and appropriate life, social and work experience to conduct the process independently and professionally.

To be accredited, we, as a Recognised Mediation Accreditation Body require a mediator to provide the following:

  1. evidence of good character; and
  2. an undertaking to comply with ongoing practice standards and compliance with any legislative and approval requirements; and
  3. evidence of relevant insurance, statutory indemnity or employee status; and
  4. evidence of membership or a relationship with an appropriate association or organisation that has appropriate and relevant ethical requirements, complaints and disciplinary processes as well as ongoing professional support; this will include other relevant memberships or relationships; and
  5. evidence of mediator competence by reference to education, training and experience.

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.
