Please note that for an application to be valid it must comply with s26(1) standards of service.

In addition, the work must fall within the definition of either "building and construction work" as laid out in s4 of the Act or "related goods and services" as laid out in s5 of the Act.


Please note that any application which is the subject of an order, judgment or other finding by an arbitrator or other person or a court or other body dealing with a matter arising under a construction contract is invalid under s25(b) of the Act. Additionally, an adjudicator may decline to adjudicate on any matter which they deem too complex to fairly make a determination under s31(2)(c)(iv) of the Act.
