DIS-Mediation/Conciliation Clause 02
The German Institution of Arbitration advises all parties wishing to make reference to DIS Mediation/Conciliation in their contracts to use the following Mediation/Conciliation clause:
"With regard to all disputes arising from or in connection with the contract (... description of the contract ...) mediation/conciliation proceedings shall be undertaken in accordance with the Mediation/Conciliation Rules of the German Institution of Arbitration e.V. (DIS) in effect on the date of commencement of the mediation/conciliation proceedings."
It is recommended that provisions concerning the number of mediators/conciliators, the language and the place of mediation/conciliation be added to the Mediation/Conciliation clause.
Please note that even if a dispute already has arisen, an agreement to conduct mediation/conciliation proceedings in accordance with the DIS - Mediation/Conciliation Rules can still be concluded at any time.
