Our director, Mr Tan Joo Seng, has published an article in the SAL Practitioner.
The article is entitled " What a Difference A Day Makes - When Does the Time for Lodging an Adjudication Application Start and End?"  SAL Prac 29.
The period for lodging an adjudication application is a critical period. Making an adjudication application outside the period will result in a rejection by the adjudicator. There are however two schools of thought on when the period starts and ends. The article considers these views and provides a definitive answer.

This case pertains to an application to the High Court by United Integrated Services Pte Ltd (“UIS”) to stay the enforcement of an adjudication determination obtained by Civil Tech Pte Ltd (“Civil Tech”) against UIS.
It deals with the parties’ rights in the situation when there are two existing adjudication determinations – an earlier determination in which a sum was awarded and a subsequent determination in which no amounts were awarded.
Can the claimant choose to enforce the earlier determination and ignore the subsequent adjudication? Read on to find out.
Glaziers Engineering Pte Ltd v WCS Engineering Construction Pte Ltd  SGCA 66
Glaziers Engineering Pte Ltd v WCS Engineering Construction Pte Ltd  SGCA 66 is the fourth Court of Appeal decision rendered in 2018. It concerned an application to set aside an adjudication determination issued under the SOP Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act (Cap. 30B) (“SOPA”) for an alleged breach of natural justice by the adjudicator.
In this post, we highlight one aspect of the Court of Appeal’s decision which will have important practical significance to claimant’s and respondent’s in the SOPA adjudication process. This is the standard of persuasion that should be applied by an adjudicator and which has to be met by the parties in order to succeed in their respective claims or set-offs.
