Registration as an Adjudicator - Western Australia

Service summary

You will require this registration if you intend to operate as an adjudicator in the construction industry.

Any business or person bound by a construction contract may apply to have a dispute about payment resolved by a registered adjudicator. A construction contract includes a contract to carry out construction work, to supply goods to a construction site, or to provide professional services or on-site services related to construction work.

Adjudicators listen to all sides of the dispute and then make a binding decision to resolve the dispute. The aim of adjudication is to resolve the payment dispute fairly and as quickly, informally and inexpensively as possible.
