Registration as an Adjudicator - Western Australia


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.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
