NZDRC's mediation Protocol

The Protocol has been drafted to promote and encourage the negotiated settlement and early and cost effective resolution of disputes by mediation. Primarily however, the Protocol provides guidance as to the rights and obligations of all participants under NZDRC’s fully administered mediation service.


The Protocol is a necessary and important component of our fully administered mediation service because mediation is consensual and not supported or underpinned by legislation.


The Protocol is incorporated into NZDRC’s Mediation process by operation of clause 1 of the Agreement to Mediate.
