VSBC Mediation Panel
* The application process to join the VSBC Mediation Panel has now closed. Applications will reopen on Monday, 9 September 2019.
The VSBC has statutory dispute resolution functions under the Small Business Commission Act 2017, the Retail Leases Act 2003, the Owner Drivers and Forestry Contractors Act 2005, the Farm Debt Mediation Act 2011 and the Transport (Compliance and Miscellaneous) Act 1983.
On 1 July 2017, the former Office of the Victorian Small Business Commissioner became the Victorian Small Business Commission with a broader range of functions.
As part of these changes, we are creating a formal VSBC Mediation Panel to establish a diverse group of experienced, commercial dispute mediation professionals to continue offering Victorian small businesses a low cost and highly effective alternative dispute resolution service.
