Formal Requirements, Information, and Documentation as per Article 2 of the BCDR-AAA Mediation Rules
The party initiating the mediation shall simultaneously notify the other party or parties of the request. The initiating party shall provide the following information to the BCDR-AAA and the other party or parties as applicable:
- A copy of the mediation provision of the parties’ contract or the parties’ stipulation to mediate.
- The names, regular mail addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers of all parties to the dispute and representatives, if any, in the mediation.
- A brief statement of the nature of the dispute and the relief requested.
- Any specific qualifications the mediator should possess. Where there is no pre-existing stipulation or contract by which the parties have provided for mediation of existing or future disputes under the auspices of BCDR-AAA, a party may request the BCDR-AAA to invite another party to participate in “mediation by voluntary submission”. Upon receipt of such a request, the BCDR-AAA will contact the other party or parties involved in the dispute and attempt to obtain a submission to mediation.
Filing Fee: The non-refundable case set-up fee is $250 per party.
