The Independent Standards Commission establishes the criteria, standards and related materials for IMI Certification. Its members, who are all thought leaders in the mediation field in their own right, contribute their time and expertise in their personal capacities and their views are not necessarily representative of the organizations with which they are affiliated.
Role of the IMI Independent Standards Commission
The IMI Independent Standards Commission has been convened by IMI for several governance purposes:
- Providing advanced thought leadership
- Setting high competency standards for mediators
- Reviewing and approving programmes to qualify mediators for IMI Certification
- Ensuring continuing quality control of approved programmes
- Monitoring the IMI Code of Professional Conduct
- Appointing assessors to review Code of Professional Conduct complaints
- Proposing and approving enhancements to IMI's Vision and Mission.
