  • Operating Procedures

    On December 5th, 2022, the AM Secretary issued the Accountability Mechanism Operating Procedures, that define how the mechanism works, and regulate the service offered to Requesters and Borrowers who choose dispute resolution to settle their differences.

    The Accountability Mechanism Operating Procedures supersede the DRS Interim Operating Procedures, originally issued in October 2021. The DRS Interim Operating Procedures continue to apply in full in cases where the Parties commenced mediation prior to the issuance of the AM Operating Procedures.* In all other cases, the AM Operating Procedures apply in full.
