These Practice Standards apply to all professional mediators.
The Practice Standards;
- Specify the minimum practice and competency requirements of a professional mediator.
- Inform participants and others about what they can expect of the mediation process and the professional mediator.
Where a professional mediator practices in any part of East Africa under a legislative framework and there is a conflict between a provision of the Practice Standards and a provision of that framework, the legislative framework will override the Practice Standards to the extent of any inconsistency.
