Mr Chia Chor Leong was the speaker for this seminar, which was chaired by Mr Naresh Mahtani. During the seminar, Mr Chia gave an overview of the latest Singapore decisions relating to adjudication determinations under the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act (Cap 30B) (“SOP Act”), discussed how the concept of “temporary finality” of adjudication determinations under the SOP Act influenced and affected arbitration proceedings, and highlighted the potential pitfalls that parties to the adjudication determination proceedings face. He also shared with the audience interesting anecdotes from his experience as an adjudicator (and as review adjudicator).
There was a Q&A session following Mr Chia’s presentation, where he addressed hypothetical adjudication determination scenarios raised by the participants, who came from various fields within the construction industry. After the seminar, the participants enjoyed a cocktail and networking reception and ended the event on a lighter note.
