The EU Commission has now published the responses received on the ADR consultation. The responses filed by experts include an IFTTA paper drafted by Larry Gore, Tom Marigiotti and John Downes. It is the second time that IFTTA participated in an EU legislative process. The commission also published a Feedback Statement to the responses received until the end of March 2011. The Commission’s proposal for a European Directive on Mediation in Civil and Commercial Matters aims to ensure a sound relationship between the mediation process and judicial proceedings, by establishing common EU rules on a number of key aspects of civil procedure.
