Standards of Conduct for Med-Arbitrators

Mediate BC in consultation with the British Columbia Arbitration and Mediation Institute has developed Med-Arb: Standards of Conduct.  

This document reflects the experience of the joint working group, their review of published materials from various jurisdictions, and the feedback of their peers.

Adhering to the Standards of Conduct is one of the requirements for maintaining Roster status.

It is recognized that while not all mediators or arbitrators are prepared to recommend or participate in the med-arb process, it remains an option for those who wish to consider it. It is also recognized that these standards of conduct may not be appropriate in the context of labour relation matters.
