WHAT IS ADJUDICATION?

With introduction of Adjudication in the proposed Security of Payment Legislation in Hong Kong, Adjudication is set to become the first-tier dispute resolution method in construction contracts.

Adjudication is one of the Alternative Dispute Resolution method. Adjudication is a dispute resolution process preliminarily resolved by an independent impartial third party, the adjudicator, who decides the dispute within a relatively short period of time. It is usually an expert in technical matters, who can comes to an interim binding decision. The winning party can enforce the adjudication decision against the losing party in its interim stage during the course of the contract if the losing party does not commence litigation or arbitration after the completion of the project.
