Prof Joel Lee, Chairman of the Singapore International Mediation Institute, will moderate MANE panel 4: "Towards a uniform mediation practice code".
Panellists: Mr Iu Ting-Kwok and Ms Ana Maria Maia Goncalves of ICFML (an IMI Qualifying Assessment Program)
Iu Ting-Kwok: "Do we need to do something more to strengthen the #SingaporeConvention, to make it work better?" Points to Art 5 items 1e and 1f. Tl;dr is that deficient mediator = decision not upheld. So how do we ensure that we use GOOD mediators? Answer = mediator standards.
ITK: What standards are applicable to the mediator/#mediation? Local standards? International standards?What is an objective test?
What are the mediator standards where settlement is cross-border? Do we need international mediator #standards? (IMI answers 'YES'.)
ITK: "If international mediators have a uniform code of practice on disclosure that may be easier for everybody."

ITK: under New Zealand Law Society rules, you *cannot* evaluate disputes as a mediator. In other countries, you do.
When we mediate (internationally), how do we know what we do and what we don't?

ITK: Professional indemnity insurance is required in Austria. Should professional liability insurance be compulsory for all practicing mediators?

Ana Maria Maia Gonçalves (AMMG) - there is no common code of practice for mediators around the world. Issues w #mediation:
1. Lack of enforcement of settlement agreements (addressed by Singapore Convention)
2. Lack of knowledge about what to expect from #mediator (What to do?)
AMMG: there are many #mediation codes of conduct around the world. Challenges that codes do not cover the same topics, and not coded in the same way.
IMI and SIMI's codes of conduct most comprehensive (see image from slide).
