FMC re-accreditation process

Family Mediation Accreditation members are members of the Family Mediation Council (FMC) and hold Family Mediation Council Accredited (FMCA) status.

The FMC has asked the Family Mediation Standards Board (FMSB) to review the FMCA accreditation process.

All Family Mediation Accreditation members will temporarily renew their FMCA status directly with the FMC.

This status renewal exercise grants a passported membership through our re-accreditation.

You’ll remain accredited under the Family Mediation Accreditation until the new FMCA standards are in place.
