Mediators' Institute of Ireland

The Mediators’ Institute of Ireland (MII) is the only professional non-profit making body for mediators in Ireland, both North and South of the border

It was established in 1996 and, until recently, it was the only professional organization in Ireland to provide accreditation for mediators. The MII sets very high standards regarding its accreditation process and after extensive international research it concluded that the minimum amount of training required to attain the quality competency level of a mediator is 60 hours. Mediators affiliated to the MII work to its Code of Ethics and fulfil its stringent, but appropriate Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.

The institute is the only professional body for mediators, both north and south of the border, and it operates a grievance procedure through which members of the public can make complaints about a mediator. If you wish to contract a professional and competent mediator, with high quality training and practice, then you require a Mediators’ Institute of Ireland certified and approved mediator.
