How can a mediator be found in the Netherlands?
In the Netherlands, there are several registers for mediators (private registers). There are no statutory provisions for quality assurance. An important register is that of the Mediatorsfederatie Nederland (MfN). Another register is the ADR International Register.
The Federation also provides independent information and quality assurance on mediation and mediators at national level. MfN registered mediators are trained and qualified to act as mediators according to the MfN Mediation Regulation. They have committed to the MfN Quality Assurance System. The Foundation for Quality Mediators handles complaints about MfN mediators.
The Legal Aid Council has a special register for mediators authorised to deal with subsidised cases.
