- as to the quality standards appropriate to Scottish Mediation Network projects established to promote the use of mediation across Scottish public life
- that effective recruitment and retention systems exist to support membership of the Network and
- that a focus on the needs of the consumers of mediation (the parties) is reflected in the way in which mediation standards are shaped, the training and CDP provided for mediators and in the way that SMN deals with concerns and complaints arising from the practice of mediation.
