Initial period – efforts to resolve Dispute
During the 30-day period after a notice is given (or longer period agreed in writing by the Parties to the Dispute) (Initial Period) each party to the Dispute (Disputant) covenants with the other to cooperate and take all reasonable steps necessary to attempt to resolve the Dispute.
If the Disputants are unable to resolve the Dispute within the Initial Period, each Disputant agrees that the Dispute shall be referred for mediation, at the request of any Disputant, to:
- A mediator agreed on by the Disputants; or
- If the Disputants are unable to agree on a mediator within seven days after the end of the Initial Period, then the Parties must submit the dispute for mediation through the Chair of Resolution Institute (ACN 008 651 232) or the Chair’s designated representative and the Resolution Institute Mediation Rules shall apply to the mediation.

Any information or Documentation disclosed by a Disputant under this clause shall be kept confidential and may not be used except to attempt to resolve the Dispute.
Costs of mediation
Each Disputant shall pay its own costs of complying with this clause. The Disputants shall pay equally the costs of any mediator engaged.
Location, timing and attendance
The mediation will be held in Cairns, Australia, within 30 days after expiry of the Initial Period. Each Disputant agrees to attend the mediation by a representative having full authority to resolve the dispute. At the mediation each Disputant may be represented by one or more legal representative.
Failure to resolve
If the dispute fails to resolve at mediation or if one of the Disputants fails or refuses to attend the mediation, the mediator will be requested to inform each Disputant in writing that the mediation has been terminated without resolution (Mediation Termination Notice). Upon receipt of Mediation Termination Notice, the dispute resolution process will be terminated. A party to a dispute will only be entitled to pursue other remedies available to it at law or otherwise, after receipt of Mediation Termination Notice.
All communications concerning negotiations made by the Disputants arising out of and in connection with this dispute resolution clause are confidential and to the extent possible, must be treated as “without prejudice” negotiations for the purpose of applicable law of evidence.
