Mediation Services

.. back
Mediation has been chosen as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism in Hong Kong for more than 10 years.  In particular, it has been widely adopted for resolving disputes in large-scale infrastructure projects, such as the Airport Core Projects.  In recent years, the government has determined to further develop mediation services to resolve civil disputes in Hong Kong, and will work closely with the mediation community and other stakeholders so as to foster a mediation-friendly environment and enhance the requisite infrastructure.  In June 2012, the Legislative Council passed the Mediation Ordinance (Cap. 620) which was operative in early 2013. In addition, a single, non-statutory, industry-led accreditation body for mediators, the Hong Kong Mediation Accreditation Association Limited ('HKMAAL'), was established in August 2012 to discharge both accreditation and disciplinary functions for mediators in Hong Kong.
 
Mediation is particularly useful in resolving disputes in construction projects which normally, involve many parties including developers, consultants, contractors, sub-contractors and other stakeholders.  Often, these parties would have their own concerns and disputes are likely to remain unresolved if parties persist in their own legal rights.  By adopting various mediation skills and the mediation process, the parties would be communicated in an effective and efficient manner.  With the assistance of a mediator, the parties would have a better understanding of their cases and would understand their cases from different perspectives.  The mediator would reinforce common objectives and grounds between the parties while they would be stimulated to explore and generate mutually acceptable win-win options to resolve their disputes.
 
Hong Kong Institute of Construction Managers ('HKICM'), being a professional institution in construction management, has started to promote, develop and encourage the use of mediation as an effective dispute resolution mechanism in settling construction disputes by setting up its own Mediation Scheme and providing mediation services to its members and the general public since 2010. Upon establishment of the HKMAAL, HKICM has been admitted as a Corporate Member of the Association since 30 May 2014.

Currently, there are a total of 31 members of HKICM being enlisted on the HKMAAL List of Accredited Construction Mediators. Within the HKICM List of Accredited Mediators (the "List"), there are many qualifying accredited mediators who are not only experienced in the construction field, but also have other qualifications such as Professor, Barrister, Construction Manager, Building and Quantity Surveyor, Building and Civil Engineer, etc. The mediators included on the List would normally provide mediation services on a commercial basis under our Mediation Scheme” (see enclosure below for details) to qualified cases related to the construction industry.  As one of the leading institutes for the local construction professionals, the aim for HKICM is to promote a harmonized environment for parties involved in the construction industry by providing mediation services across the industry, especially for the main contractors and sub-contractors.
 
For main contractors, they are advised to include a mediation clause in their contracts with sub-contractors.  From the perspective of the sub-contractors, they are advised to take proactive action to resolve their problems by seeking a suitable HKICM Accredited Mediator at the earlier stage of any disagreement with their counterpart in order to minimize any further misunderstanding in the event of potential disputes.
 
Mediators on the HKICM List of Accredited Mediators are ready to give their helping hands on cases to be referred from the HKICM members, consultants, contractors, sub-contractors, public and other stakeholders.
