Dispute boards

ADR Platform connects projects, groups and sectors to independent dispute boards which provide customised dispute resolution services

What is a dispute board?

Every board is connected to a project, sectoral group, sector/branche, business or government. What differentiates a boaard is that they are independently authorised en their processes and procedures are tailored to the wishes of the specific connected party. In this way we ensure that the dispute resolution procedure is appropriate and tailored to the character of the board and it's associated parties. We thus don't choose a standard judicial procedure. Instead, opting for a tailored procedure operated by qualified and certified practitioners.

Who works in a dispute board?

All dispute boards work exclusively with qualified personnel. Because each dispute board has it's own dispute resolution process a specific profile will be created to define what exactly defines 'qualified'. All personnel must be certified with a professional body to ensure that anyone filing a dispute with a dispute board can have the confidence that they are in the hands of qualified personnel that will do them and their complaint justice in accordance with the appropriate procedure.
