The provider program at issue, IDRS Ltd., administers a range of dispute resolution programs in the area of consumer complaints and complaints between businesses and public sector organizations.  As a result of the sale, IDRS will continue as a going concern under CeDR’s umbrella, and CIArb will concentrate on its core business as a professional and membership body.
