Professional Standards

To maintain high quality dispute resolution services, so that parties, the sport community, and the general public can have confidence in its processes, the SDRCC has developed a procedure for the investigation and resolution of complaints about its arbitrators, mediators or resolution facilitators.

The SDRCC complaints process is intended as an administrative procedure to improve, as required, the dispute resolution services and to investigate any alleged breach by the dispute resolution service providers of the Code of Conduct for SDRCC Mediators and Arbitrators. It is not intended to review, change or overturn the decisions rendered by arbitrators.
