Security of Payment Act (SA) 2009 & Security of Payment Regulations (SA) 2011

Effective from 20th April 2012, the South Australian Chapter of IAMA (ABN 80 008 520 045) is an Authorised Nominating Authority (ANA) to nominate adjudicators for the purposes of the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 2009 (the Act).

The Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators Australia (IAMA), ABN 80 008 520 045, is a leading Authorised Nominating Authority (ANA) and registered training provider under the Act. Following the merger of IAMA with LEADR in January 2015, now known as Resolution Institute, the organisation of IAMA has been retained in order to ensure that where IAMA has been listed as a prescribed appointor, nominating authority or otherwise referred to for the purposes of appointing a dispute resolution professional, the applicable service can be provided. Resolution Institute has been appointed by the Board of IAMA to administer IAMA operations. In this capacity Resolution Institute has been administering IAMA appointments under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 2009 (SA) since January 2015.

Resolution Institute does not charge a fee for applications made under the Security of Payments Acts (SA) 2009, however the schedule for adjudicators fees depends on the quantum of the matter as listed below:
