The ICAS draws up the list of mediators chosen from the list of CAS arbitrators or from outside.
The personalities whom the ICAS chooses appear on the list of mediators for a four-year period, and are thereafter eligible for reselection.
Unless the parties have agreed between themselves on who the mediator will be, he shall be chosen by the CAS President from among the list of CAS mediators and appointed after consultation with the parties.
In accepting such appointment, the mediator undertakes to devote sufficient time to the mediation proceedings as will allow these to be conducted expeditiously. The mediator shall be and must remain independent of the parties, and is bound to disclose any circumstances likely to compromise his independence with respect to any of the parties.
Having duly been informed thereof, the parties may however authorize the mediator to continue his mandate, by means of a signed separate or joint declaration.
In the event of an objection by any of the parties, or at his own discretion if he deems himself unable to bring the mediation to a successful conclusion, the mediator shall cease his mandate and inform the CAS President accordingly, whereupon the latter will make arrangements to replace him, after consulting the parties.
