Интеграция медиации в судебную систему: практика, проблемы, перспективы: I Межрегион. конф., 17 окт. 2019 г., г. Балашиха Московской обл.
One of the tasks of the system of chambers of commerce and industry of the Russian Federation is to promote the spread of mediation practice and consolidation of the community of mediators. Today, in the overwhelming majority of regions of Russia, mediation finds a response from potential users, and this is due to the initiative and enthusiasm of representatives of the mediator community. The abstracts included in this collection are a reflection of the work carried out in the field of mediation and alternative dispute resolution in Russia. The issues and tasks facing the mediation community are largely the same regardless of the regions.
From 25.10.2019 in Russia, there are new provisions of a number of laws aimed at improving mediation procedures. One of the key such provisions was the empowerment of notaries to certify mediated settlement agreements. Agreements reached by the parties as a result of the mediation procedure carried out without transferring the dispute to the court, in the case of its notarization, will then have the force of an enforcement document. Mediated settlement agreements are subject to notarization not in a mandatory manner, but at the request of the parties. The creation of a new legislative mechanism to give mediated settlement agreements the force of an enforcement document is, on the whole, a positive change in itself, but it is not entirely thought out and creates new serious risks. It is highly likely that this mechanism will be reviewed in the coming years.
