This section helps you to find a mediator in Spain.
Under Law 5/2012 on mediation in civil and commercial matters, mediators must have an official university or advanced vocational training qualification and specific training in mediation acquired through attending one or more specific courses taught by officially recognised institutions. These qualifications must be valid throughout Spain.
The laws and implementing provisions of certain Autonomous Communities specify the required training for family mediation. As a general rule, mediators are required to have at least a university diploma plus 100-300 course hours of practical training in mediation.
Specific mediation training is usually provided by university institutes and professional associations, e.g. of psychologists or lawyers.
There is no single register of mediators. There are several ways of finding specialised mediators:
Until now it has been the Autonomous Communities which require the associations to keep these lists.
There is no national register. In any case, access to the lists of the professional associations is free of charge.
You can contact the relevant professional association for information on registered mediators.
