Complaint against an adjudicator | Queensland Building and Construction Commission

Adjudicators standard of conduct

According to the Adjudicator's code of conduct (PDF, 56KB) a registered adjudicator must:

  • manage prescribed conflicts of interest
  • conduct her/himself professionally
  • maintain impartiality and objectivity
  • ensure confidentiality is maintained
  • comply with legislation and the Registrar’s policies
  • charge reasonable fees.

If an adjudicator breaches their code of conduct they may have their adjudicator’s registration suspended or cancelled.

Adjudicator’s decision

The Registrar is not empowered to change or overturn an Adjudicators decision. If you remain dissatisfied with the adjudicator’s decision, you may seek review in the Supreme Court of Queensland. If you wish to do so, we recommend that you obtain legal advice.
