The Cross-Border Mediation (EU Directive) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

The Mediation Directive seeks to harmonise certain aspects of mediation in relation to EU cross-border disputes, with the aim of promoting its use in those EU cross-border disputes. A cross-border dispute can be a dispute between people who are domiciled or habitually resident in two or more different Member States (for example, contract, debt, contact with children) or it can be a dispute where the judicial proceedings or arbitration following mediation between the parties are started in a Member State other than one where the parties are domiciled or habitually resident. For the purposes of the Mediation Directive, Denmark is not included in the term “Member State”.
