IP Australia will be establishing a domestic IP Mediation Referral Service where IP right holders will be able to access mediation as a low cost and effective alternative to resolving IP-related disputes.
We are currently calling for applications and seeking the interest from accredited and qualified mediators, who are members of your organisation through a request for application process. It is now available on AusTender.
We encourage applicants to submit through AusTender . For full details please consult the request for application documentation.
The service established by IP Australia will:
- promote a mediation referral service as an alternative to the resolution of IP related matters;
- assist parties in the selection of private sector mediators from a panel of qualified and accredited individuals or providers;
- enhance IP Australia's role in providing information and support services in relation to IP disputes; and
- encourage visibility of mediation services available for Australian IP applicants and owners.
We would appreciate it if you could please share this information with your members and other interested parties.
