Important COVID-19 Update

x

These are certainly challenging times for us all.

We are committed to doing everything we can to prioritise the wellbeing of our people, those who use our services and their representatives and the communities we serve to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Saturday, our people will begin working remotely from today, Monday 23 March.

Having well developed online dispute resolution options, it will in many ways be business as usual for us as we focus on providing a seamless service, regardless of where our Registry staff, adjudicators, arbitrators and mediators are working.

We know you are working through similar challenges to ours and that these are uncertain times for everyone. From all of us here we send our thoughts to you, your teams and families.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance to you and we will keep you informed with any further updates.

GUIDE TO RESISTING ENFORCEMENT UNDER THE CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS ACT 2002

Download a copy of our Guide to Resisting Enforcement under the Construction Contracts Act 2002 today

There are several ways for a party to enforce an adjudication determination under the Construction Contracts Act 2002 (the Act), and it is generally very difficult to resist enforcement. However, there are some options depending on the method of enforcement employed.

An adjudicator’s determination can also (in some circumstances) be challenged through judicial review in the High Court.

This Guide is intended to provide a summary of ways to resist enforcement and should be read alongside the Building Disputes Tribunal Guide to Enforcement under the Construction Contracts Act 2002.
