The American Bar Association defined and adopted Model Standards of Conduct for Mediators in 2007.  As described on the ABA's site:

"These standards are designed to serve as fundamental ethical guidelines for persons mediating in all practice contexts. They serve three goals: to guide the conduct of mediators, to inform the mediating parties, and to promote public confidence in mediation."
