DEC App 1.10 Result of the mediation

DEC App 1.10.1G

Mediation can only give rise to one of two outcomes:

  1. (1)

    a proposal for settlement agreed between the parties; or

  2. (2)

    no agreed proposal.

DEC App 1.10.2G

If no agreed proposal is reached, the mediation will be terminated and the case will return to the point it had reached in the enforcement process prior to the mediation.1

DEC App 1.10.3G

If a settlement proposal is agreed, it will be considered by the RDC, which will decide whether to approve it. If it is approved, a decision notice, and subsequently a final notice, will be issued reflecting the terms of the agreement reached. If it is not approved, the parties may return to the mediation only with the RDC's consent. If the RDC does not consent, the case will return to the point it had reached in the enforcement process prior to the mediation. 1

DEC App 1.10.4G

1A person may elect to mediate only once during the course of the enforcement process.
