of the parties, may use mediation, conciliation, or other procedures at any time during
the arbitral proceedings to encourage settlement.

tribunal shall terminate the proceedings and, if requested by the parties and not
objected to by the arbitral tribunal, record the settlement in the form of an arbitral
award on agreed terms.
(c) An award on agreed terms shall be made in accordance with the provisions of G.S. 1-567.61 and shall state that it is an arbitral award. Such an award shall have the same status and effect as any other award on the substance
