Adjudication

A type of alternative dispute resolution ( www.practicallaw.com/A35809). A procedure that provides for the adjudicator’s decision to be temporarily binding, that is, it is binding on the parties until the dispute is finally determined by court proceedings, arbitration ( www.practicallaw.com/A35845) or settlement. It is best known in the construction industry, where the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 introduced a statutory right for parties to a construction contract to refer a dispute to adjudication.
