OBJECTIVE
PMA endevours to create a platform allowing commercial entities to resolve their disputes through Mediation. In order to allow that; PMA strongly recommends that the contracting entities should have the following clauses inserted in all contracts.
That any and every dispute, difference or question which may arise between the Parties to this Agreement shall be first settled by the Parties by an attempt at amicably setting the dispute through mutual negotiations. In case the disputes, differences or questions cannot be settled amicably or satisfactorily by correspondence or by mutual discussion within thirty days (30) after receipt by one party of the other party’s request for amicable settlement, it shall be referred to mediation to a panel of PMA Accredited Mediators. Mediation proceedings will be governed by the internationally recognized rules of mediation.
