Singapore Mediation Centre


Set up in 1997, the Singapore Mediation Centre ("SMC")  was established to promote, develop and facilitate the settlement of disputes by alternative dispute resolution processes.

As an alternative to litigation or arbitration, SMC offers the business community a range of reliable, more cost-effective and faster alternative dispute resolution services, including mediation, neutral evaluation, med-arb and domain name dispute resolution services. The services provided by SMC are designed to complement the suite of services that Singapore offers as a pre-eminent centre for dispute resolution needs.

SMC is also entrusted as the Authorised Nominating Body by the Building and Construction Authority under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act (Cap 30B) to administer the adjudication regime pursuant to the legislation for payment claim defaults in the construction industry.

Through years of experience, SMC has established a reputation for providing training in mediation and negotiation that is of the highest standard in Singapore and the region.

SMC is a not-for-profit organisation structured as a company limited by the guarantee of the Singapore Academy of Law.
