The Center believes that mediation should be cost effective. In consultation with parties and mediators, the Center ensures that fees charged in a WIPO mediation in IPOS proceedings are appropriate in light of the circumstances of the dispute.
Effective April 1, 2016, parties to IPOS proceedings can benefit from the IP Mediation Promotion Scheme, which will fund their mediation costs up to SGD 5,500. Further information can be found here.
