The Contractor shall continue its performance of the provisions of the Contract (unless the PCT requests in writing that the Contractor does not do so).
The Parties will attempt in good faith to resolve any dispute promptly through negotiation between their authorised representatives.

To initiate a mediation the Parties may give notice in writing (a "Mediation Notice") to the other requesting mediation of the dispute and shall send a copy thereof to CEDR or an equivalent mediation organisation as agreed by the Parties asking them to nominate a mediator. The mediation shall commence within [twenty eight (28)] days of the Mediation Notice being served. The Parties will co-operate with any person appointed as mediator providing him with such information and other assistance as he shall require and will pay his costs, as he shall determine or in the absence of such determination such costs will be shared equally.
If the matter has not been resolved by the mediation procedure detailed in clause 18.3 within [one (1) month] of the initiation of such procedure, the dispute shall be referred to a single arbitrator to be agreed upon by the Parties or in default of agreement within [fourteen (14)] days to be nominated by the President for the time being of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators in accordance with the Arbitration Act 1996. The arbitration shall take place in London and shall be in accordance with the Arbitration Act 1996 and in accordance with such arbitration rules as the Parties may agree or, in default of agreement, in accordance with the Rules of the London Court of International Arbitration which Rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this Clause 18.4.66
