The Elephant Test is a very important legal test, or, if it isn’t it should be. It goes like this; I can’t describe an elephant, but I know one if I see one. It is much easier than a written description. All you need is a picture or a visit to the zoo.

When I first got involved in adjudication, way back in 1998, I was aware of at least 20 organisations that claimed to perform the role of Adjudicator Nominating Body (ANB).

Unless one was very familiar with the 1st edition, it is not easy to decipher the changes in the 2nd edition, as no redline version showing the differences was published. So some inside knowledge, and some historical records, are indeed useful in identifying the changes and the reasons for them.

I was talking recently to a party who had lost rather badly in an adjudication.

In recent years, there have been an increasing number of individual adjudicators who carry business through a firm or a company. This trend has given rise to a number of issues in relation to the role of such companies.
