This Division is responsible for producing ‘Draft Findings’ on any matter forwarded to the A.D. by PTI Council. In the process of producing these findings strictly according to ‘positive’ (i.e. written) law, the A.D. may arrange for public hearings and issue summonses and Notices to the respective parties to attend. ‘Findings’ that are subsequently endorsed by Council will become formal ‘PTI Determinations’ which will in turn carry the intrinsic jurisdiction of positive law, and may be used in any format as a published legal document – including being ‘served’ on any-and-all third parties.
The A.D. also provides mediation and arbitration services.
