Prize or Prejudice: The Interplay Between Arbitration and Adjudication – Legal and Practical Issues
Contact SIArb Secretariat, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

About the Seminar:

Adjudication under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act (Cap 30B) (the “SOP Act”) is a “fast and low cost adjudication system to resolve payment disputes”. It is designed to facilitate cash flow and has been well used since its inception in 2005. But adjudication determinations enjoy only “temporary finality” under Section 21 of the SOP Act. What does this mean, and how has this concept influenced or affected Court decisions?

In this seminar, the speaker, Mr Chia Chor Leong, will address this and other questions such as:

• If parties later go to arbitration, what impact does the adjudication determination have on the arbitration and the making of the award?
• Can the adjudication determination itself (and the Order of Court granting leave to enforce it) be the subject of a reference to arbitration?
• Can it be the subject of an interim award?
• What is the effect of it being binding until the dispute is “finally determined” by the tribunal?
• How can a party use a favourable adjudication determination to its advantage in an arbitration?
• Can the tribunal consider the adjudication determination or the issues and submissions in the adjudication in making its award?
• How should the tribunal treat the adjudication determination?
• Is the tribunal obliged or allowed to open up and review it?
