Commercial Mediation Process

The commercial mediation is conducted according to the following process:

  • Parties may agree on the order and procedure of mediation or choose the Mediation Rules of a commercial mediation organization.
  • If there is no agreement, the commercial mediator conducts the process in a manner they deem suitable for the case, the wishes of the parties, and with the agreement of all parties involved.
  • The mediation can be carried out by one or more mediators, as agreed by the parties. A commercial mediator has the right to propose dispute resolution at any time during the mediation process.
  • The parties can agree on the time and place for mediation; if not agreed upon, the commercial mediator will make the selection.

Benefits of Commercial Mediation in Dispute Resolution

Currently, commercial mediation has become a popular method of dispute resolution due to the following benefits:

  • Justice is established by the parties themselves.
  • The confidentiality of the case is effectively ensured.
  • Disputes are resolved quickly.
  • More cost-effective than resolution through courts and arbitration.
  • Parties can control the extent of the dispute, and the cooperative relationship is still maintained after successful mediation.
  • The dispute resolution procedure is friendly.

Forms of Commercial Mediation

Dispute resolution through commercial mediation can be conducted in one of the following forms:

First, Institutional Commercial Mediation

This form resolves disputes at a commercial mediation organization according to the rules of that organization. The disputing parties can choose a Commercial Mediation Center or an Arbitration Center registered for commercial mediation.

Institutional commercial mediation has the following advantages and disadvantages:

  • Advantages: A professional organization provides a list of mediators with information and guarantees about the mediators’ qualifications; follows established rules and mediation procedures.
  • Disadvantages: The disputing parties must adhere to the organization’s rules; they must pay mediation fees according to a fixed schedule.

Second, Ad Hoc Commercial Mediation

This form of dispute resolution is conducted by ad hoc commercial mediators chosen by the parties according to regulations and agreements between the parties.

Ad hoc commercial mediation has the following advantages and disadvantages:

  • Advantages: Less influence from the mediation organization as it works directly with one or more mediators as requested. For this mediation method, the parties can apply procedures prescribed by law, apply the rules of a specific mediation organization, or agree to develop a suitable procedure.
  • Disadvantages: Without an organization to resolve the dispute, it may lack professionalism, leading to a waste of time and costs without achieving the desired effectiveness.
