The first stage of the objective third party assessment of an applicant for an ADRIC designation is completed by the Regional Assessment Committee (RAC). This committee is comprised of at least three Chartered members selected by the affiliate for their recognized experience and standing in the ADR Community. The RAC meets with and interviews the applicant. Applicants for a Mediator designation will also be asked to do a mock mediation and to deal with a proposed “ethical issue”.
Once the applicant has been reviewed by the regional committee, if he or she is successful, the application will be forwarded to ADRIC with the recommendation the designation be conferred. If all is in order ADRIC will notify the candidate of his/her success and next steps which include making pro-rated payment of the annual fee and sending of the certificate.
Designation holders requesting a replacement or additional copies of their certificate must order them via the ADRIC shop: Certificate Re-Issue
