The provisions of ORS 36.220 (Confidentiality of mediation communications and agreements) to 36.238 (Application of ORS 36.210 and 36.220 to 36.238) do not apply to a mediation conducted under ORS 135.951 (Authorization) or 135.953 (How mediation may be used) unless the parties to the mediation enter into a written agreement for confidentiality of the mediation. If the parties enter into a written agreement for confidentiality of the mediation, a court may not receive in evidence in any proceeding any mediation communications or mediation agreement to the extent provided by ORS 36.220 (Confidentiality of mediation communications and agreements) to 36.238 (Application of ORS 36.210 and 36.220 to 36.238). The parties participating in mediation must be informed:

(1) Of the right to enter into a written agreement concerning confidentiality of the mediation proceedings; and

(2) That mediation communications or agreements may not be used as an admission of guilt or as evidence against the offender in any adjudicatory proceeding. [1995 c.323 §4; 1997 c.670 §13]
