Welcome to the
Australian Mediation Register
The Australian Mediation Register is an independent Register of mediators who meet benchmark standards of quality.
This website gives free access to information about people who practice all kinds of mediation. The data is updated by these mediators at least once a year.
The Australian Mediation Register (AMR) aims to re-assure people about the quality of the mediator they select. The common standards that the mediators on this site comply with are set in accordance with the Australian National Mediator Standards as well as those mediators registered under the Attorney-General’s Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner accreditation standards here.
Mediators who have been accredited by a Recognised Mediation Accreditation Body (RMAB), such as the Australian Mediation Association, can utilise the post nominal "Accredited Mediator NMAS".
Where a regulating organisation can certify that a mediator has met the organisation's additional sectoral standards, an additional 'badge' from that organisation may be applied beside the mediator’s entry on the Register.
We describe mediation in accordance with the Australian National Mediator Standards as "a process in which participants, with the support of a mediator, identify issues, develop options, consider alternatives and make decisions about future actions and outcomes. The mediator acts as a third party to support participants to reach their own decision".
