The Florence International Mediation Chamber (FIMC) has been included in the list of non-governmental organizations eligible for invitation to attend as an observer the sessions of the United Nation Commission on International Trade Law (Uncitral) Working Group II (Arbitration and conciliation).
The Working Group II is working on the preparation of an instrument of enforcement of settlement agreements arising from international mediation procedures.
Even though FIMC does not participate in the decision-making, as an observer it’s allowed to represent the views of the organization on matters where it has expertise or international experience so as to facilitate the deliberations.
FIMC believes that such an instrument could give an added value to international mediation and, as a result, increase the use of this ADR tool. That’s why FIMC is very focused in cooperating with Working Group II, delivering practical information based on the Chamber of Commerce’s experience as a mediation institution.
Accordingly, FIMC representatives attended the Sixty Third session of the Working Group II that took place in Vienna from 7th to 11th September 2015. In the course of this session the FIMC representative made a statement exposing the FIMC point of view based on the Chamber of Commerce’s domestic and international mediation experience.
Currently, FIMC is working on a position paper to be submitted to the Uncitral delegates at the Sixty Fourth session that will take place in New York from 1st to 5th February 2016.
