The Adjudication Society has published a number of Guidance Notes relating to adjudication. These include:
- Guidance Note: Jurisdiction of the UK Construction Adjudicator (Version 2, December 2012)
- Guidance Note: Construction Contracts and Construction Operations
- Guidance Note: Adjudicator’s Liens
- Guidance Note: Natural Justice
- Guidance Note: The Scheme for Construction Contracts
The Adjudication Society and Chartered Institute of Arbitrators established a joint working group in April 2010 in order to produce a series of Guidance Notes dealing with adjudication. The purpose was to deal with adjudication in England, Wales and Scotland. Nicholas Gould, Partner, Fenwick Elliott LLP chaired the joint working group, which was established under the policy subcommittee of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and the executive committee of the Adjudication Society.
The Guidance Notes are to assist not just adjudicators, but also parties and party representatives in respect of the key issues that they and adjudicators might encounter when dealing with adjudication under the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, and the subsequent Local Democracy Economic Development and Construction Act 2009. The Guidance will take into account the Scheme, amendments to it and also pertinent case law.
Members of the Working Group:
- Nicholas Gould, Partner, Fenwick Elliott LLP (Chairman of the Working Group)
- Jeremy Glover, Partner, Fenwick Elliott LLP
- Matt Molloy, MCMS
- Philip Fidler, Dispute Decisions Ltd
- Rob Horne, Trowers & Hamlin
- Susan Francombe, No Red Tape
- William Webb, Keating Chambers
Claire King and James Mullen of Fenwick Elliott also assist with the research and drafting.
