Amendments to the SOP Act

The SOP Amendment Act
A Commentary on the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment (Amendment) Act 2018

 

Since the passage of the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act (Cap 30B) or the SOP Act in 2004, the dispute resolution landscape in the construction industry has changed considerably. Each year between 400 and 500 adjudication applications are lodged and the statutory adjudication process is now the

principal dispute resolution route for construction payment claim disputes.

In 2018, Parliament passed the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment (Amendment) Act 2018. The Amendment Act raises important changes to the operation of the statutory adjudication regime, including changes to the scope of contracts which comes under the Act and the provision for the claimant to now apply for a review of an adjudication determination. This work addresses a number of important issues arising from the amendments.

The authors are senior adjudicators and general editors of the Singapore Construction Adjudication Review, an established series of reports on adjudication determinations since 2005.

JICL promotes international legal research and scholarship. In addition to articles by scholars and practitioners on “black letter law,” we welcome interdisciplinary contributions especially those that tangibly link such disciplines as social sciences, economics, international politics and other fields of research and academic debate that may be more empirically based but of major significance in influencing the focus and reform of law in its national and global contexts.

Submissions are welcome for publication in 2022. Articles may be submitted to Professor Anton Cooray at Anton.cooray.1@city.ac.uk to whom any inquiries may also be directed.
