NMAS REVIEW 2020-21
We are committed to ensuring the NMAS Review is conducted responsibly, ethically and with integrity. While the NMAS Review is not being conducted under the auspices of a traditional research institution, we recognise the potential for it to make an important contribution to the field of industry-based research into dispute resolution. Within this context, the NMAS Review 2020-21 has adopted The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (the Code) which articulates the broad principles that characterise an honest, ethical and conscientious research culture. It establishes a framework for responsible research conduct that provides a foundation for high-quality research, credibility and community trust in the research endeavour.

The main purpose of the review is to:
For example, changes and additions may include (subject to the feedback received):
The NMAS Review utilises a well-established methodology that incorporates thorough consultation and culminates in a series of recommendations. The MSB will consider and decide upon these recommendations in mid 2021.
The consultation component of the review includes carefully designed surveys and workshops that target specific parts of the DR community at different points in the review process.
Stakeholders involved in the consultation component will include, but are not limited to:
Over the life of the NMAS Review, we will advise the dispute resolution community about opportunities to contribute. This will be predominantly done via email, announcements on this website and LinkedIn.
If you have not yet connected with the MSB or RR on LinkedIn we invite you to do so here.
You might also consider contacting your local RMAB, NMAS training organisation or other professional dispute resolution peak organisation to find out more about how they will be contributing to the review.
We look forward to your involvement in this important process.
No, we are not taking written submissions.
The methodology for the review is collaborative and interactive. During the reference group and workshop phases, representatives will be invited to engage in open professional dialogue and problem solving to collectively consider potential changes and additions to NMAS.
Apart from the examples for consideration noted in the purpose, there are no pre-existing areas identified for consideration. This is the work of the representatives at the reference groups, and to a lesser extent the workshops, and will form the basis of the NMAS Review Survey.
Every stakeholder will have an opportunity to provide their input via the NMAS Review Survey.
