Membership and MSB registration fee
As of 1 March 2012, the MSB introduced a registration fee of $100 (including GST) payable at the time of accreditation or re-accreditation and thereafter every two years on each successive re-accreditation. If you are a Professional or Fellow level member of Resolution Institute, no further fees apply. If, however, you are a member of another RMAB or a member or employee of an organisation with a relevant ethical code of conduct or standard and a complaints and disciplinary procedure that can address complaints against mediators, (e.g. Fair Work Ombudsman, Fair Work Commission) a further $88 administrative fee applies.
If you are a member of another compliant RMAB or organisation, please provide proof of your membership in PDF form below.
