Law 3898 about mediation, which implemented the EU-Mediation Directive, was introduced in December 2010 and it provides for the issuance of supplementary ministerial decisions and presidential decrees, some of which have not yet been issued. As a result, at the moment mediation cannot be applied as a method of alternative dispute resolution. Only lawyers can act as mediators after their certification, which is awarded after examination before an examination committee. The parties can use mediation only as relates to rights and obligations on which they are free to decide themselves (e.g. small claims disputes, consumer law disputes, some family law disputes, trade law disputes). The use of mediation depends on the initiative of the parties and constitutes a strictly private procedure of resolving disputes. The main aim of introducing mediation in Greece is to relieve the congestion experienced in the state courts.
