I have attended the forum in 2008 in Canada, and I had a chance to introduce the “ICA-Net” in Israel in 2009. While EU launched “ECC-Net” for cross boarder complaint handling in EU, though “ICA-Net” is a pilot but it showed efficiency, US proposed “OAS-ODR” are approved as working group in UNCITRAL. I participated the first preliminary conference in Vancouver in 2010 to introduce “ICA-Net” experience again.
