BCIPA ALERT! Reforms Passed Yesterday

September, 2014

The Building and Construction Industry Payments Amendment Bill 2014 (Qld) has now been passed. The following important changes to BCIPA have now been enacted:

The above reforms will affect contracts entered into after the date of proclamation (the Act has not yet been proclaimed). However, the reforms relating to the appointment of adjudicators by the QBCC Registry will apply to all contracts from the date of proclamation.

Due to the nature of these changes both claimants and respondents will be affected. It is important to ensure that you understand the new time limits and other amendments and how they will affect you.

Please contact Mills Oakley’s Building, Construction and Infrastructure Team with any questions or queries you may have in relation to the new Act and to ensure that your business is adequately prepared to deal with these changes.
