Adjudication is a dispute resolution process which is particularly applicable to the construction sector. In the UK adjudication was introduced by the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996.

It is not possible to contract out of it.


Adjudication produces an interim binding decision; the time period for a decision is 28 days, which may be extendable. The objective is to get decisions made and cash flow preserved.


Statutory adjudication has also been introduced in Malaysia, where ARBDB Chambers has an office, Singapore and Australia.

ArbDB Chambers has a cadre of experienced adjudicators, so we look forward to hearing about your requirements and needs. 


Please contact our Clerk, Martin Poulter.
