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 served a payment claim prior to 17 December 2018, and need to apply for adjudication, you will need to complete a BCIPA Adjudication Application Form.
If the adjudicated amount is not paid, you can complete an Application for Adjudication Certificate.
