Membership of the Civil and Commercial Mediation Panel
In addition to satisfying the General Panel membership requirements, members of the Panel will need to satisfy the Accreditation requirements of the Civil Mediation Council.
The Panel maintains mediators who are available for referral to parties seeking a mediator. The panel is comprised of experienced mediators who have acted as lead mediator in at least five mediations in the three years prior to application for membership of the Panel. Alternatively, you can gain Panel membership by completing two mediations as assistant mediator in the year prior to application for membership of the Panel and have received satisfactory reports from the lead mediators concerned. Admission to the Panel is at the discretion of the Association.
Panel members will also be required to maintain professional indemnity insurance of at least £1million, to comply with CPD requirements and subscribe to the regulations of the Association in relation to Panel.
Documents and application forms are available for download in the Members Area.
Each year you will need to be re-accredited with the Civil Mediation Council. In order to achieve this you will need to satisfy the Association that
you continue to meet the Common Panel membership requirements;
you have achieved the ongoing annual CPD requirement; and
you have had relevant current experience within the last twelve months.
