Regulation of the Supreme Court No. 3 of 2022 on Electronic Mediation in Courts
Enforcement Date: 30 May 2022
- Mediation that is conducted through electronic means (“E-Mediation”) can only be initiated if there is mutual agreement between the disputing parties (“Parties”). If such an agreement is reached, then the judges presiding over the dispute will provide an E-Mediation approval form to the Parties to be signed and submitted to the substitute clerk.
- After the submission of an E-Mediation approval form to the clerk, several additional administrative actions must be undertaken by the Parties, specifically: 1) Appointment of mediator; 2) Verification of identities; 3) Determination of E-Mediation application; and 4) Submission of E-Mediation case resume.
- After the administration phase of the E-Mediation procedure has been completed, the Parties should then hold an E-Mediation meeting within the application’s virtual rooms, as agreed by the parties. The costs associated with this process should be borne by the Parties concerned.
- Based on the above-described E-Mediation meetings, mediators should deliver a statement outlining the results (and the success or failure) of the E-Mediation process to the panel of judges electronically through the court’s information system.
