The P.R.I.M.E. Finance Mediation rules are based on the commonly used UNCITRAL Conciliation Rules 1980. Considering the developments in mediation techniques and trends, we have made some refinements to the UNCITRAL Conciliation Rules in order to both build in the P.R.I.M.E. Finance Secretariat and to introduce some more updated features.

As a general principle, in preparing the rules we have kept deviations from the original text to a minimum, in order to enable reference to the commentaries on the UNCITRAL Conciliation Rules, where needed by users.
