Details :

According to a survey conducted by the government, there are widespread payment problems in the local construction industry. In order to overcome this issue, the government has set up a Working Group on Security of Payment Legislation to solicit views on the proposed legislative elements. While these can be based on similar legislations in some overseas countries, there are also many specific local issues. This seminar is to briefly introduce some key issues in the proposed security of payment legislation such as the (1) scope of application of the legislation, (2) progress payment, (3) prohibitions on pay-when-paid and conditional payment, (4) rights to suspend work for non-payment, (5) adjudication, and (6) enforcement of adjudicators' decisions. Similar legislations in the United Kingdom, Australia and Singapore are also compared with the view of identifying the merits and shortcomings of various models.
