SA draft Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment (Review Recommendations) Amendment Bill 2021

Wednesday 10 Feb 2021

Members are advised of the SA draft Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment (Review Recommendations) Amendment Bill 2021 (the draft Bill).
 
The draft Bill amends the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 2009 by inserting new section 33A to enable a party to apply to the District Court for a review of an adjudicator's determination. The amendment is aimed to provide parties with a choice as to whether to seek a review of an adjudicator's determination in the District Court or the Supreme Court.
 
Subject to the consultation response, it is proposed that this amendment will be incorporated in the Bill implementing wider reforms to the Act which includes recommendations made in the report of Mr John Murray AM entitled Review of Security of Payment Laws: Building Trust and Harmony (December 2017).
 
The draft Bill can be accessed here.  Please provide your feedback by 18 February 2021.
