The Fees Mediation Committee (FMC) deals with fee disputes between PEO licence and Certificate of Authorization holders and their clients. The fees mediation and arbitration processes are available to clients of engineering companies who wish to dispute fees charged for professional engineering services. The FMC may either mediate or arbitrate fee disputes between professional engineering companies and their clients, as an alternative to legal action taken through the court system.
