Adjudication Process for CIPAA 2012
#CIPAA2012 -Construction Industry & Payment Adjudication Act 2012
Payment disputes are the concern of CIPAA Act and can be brought to an adjudicator certified by Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC) as an alternative form of dispute resolution. It is believed to be cheaper and faster than litigation through the Courts. This Act gives wide powers to the adjudicator with a view to enable a decision to be made within 45 days upon the close of pleadings. As such, the underlying approach for justice of this Act is “Pay Now, Argue Later”. This rough justice approach lays in stark contrast to the fine justice approach adopted by the Courts.
