Mediation can be defined as a structured process whereby two or more parties to a dispute attempt by themselves, on a voluntary basis, to reach an agreement on the settlement of their dispute with the assistance of a neutral and qualified third party (“mediator”). This process may be initiated by the parties or suggested or ordered by a court or prescribed by the law of a Member State.

Mediation can be used to resolve disputes with a firm, a tradesperson, your employer, even a member of your family, in your own country or abroad.

The process of coming to an agreement through mediation is usually faster and less expensive than a court proceeding.
