Protecting your payment rights

Adjudication (BCIPA) - for claims dated before 17 December 2018

Please note: The changes to progress payments and adjudication included in the Building Industry Fairness(Security of Payment) Act 2017 (BIF Act) commenced on 17 December 2018. This also resulted in a repeal of the Building and Construction Industry Payments Act 2004 (BCIPA).

Despite the repeal of the BCIPA, however, if a payment claim was given before 17 December 2018, and there are unfinished matters for the payment claim, BCIPA continues to apply.

If you are unsure of which legislative framework applies to your circumstances, please contact the Registry on 3613 3450 or 3613 3451.
