The Construction Industry Council (CIC) is developing a Low Value Disputes Model Adjudication Procedure (LVD MAP) to provide a simple and cost-effective procedure to make adjudication more accessible for SME’s and others involved in lower value claims.
The CIC initiative is a response to growing construction industry concerns about the increasing complexity and prohibitive costs of adjudication. The CIC LVD MAP is aimed at disputes where claims are for £50,000 or less, and the issues in dispute are relatively uncomplicated. The CIC LVD MAP is being developed by a Working Group drawn from key industry bodies, including the Adjudication Society, CIC, CEDR, ICE and the RICS.
The CIC wishes to consult with the construction industry and other stakeholders to give everyone the opportunity to make the CIC LVD MAP the best that it can be. The consultation offers interested parties an opportunity to discuss and shape the CIC LVD MAP, and enable CIC to gauge the degree of industry support for this initiative.
The CIC LVD MAP can be downloaded here.
Your comments, opinions, suggestions, and views are valued, and should be sent to:
CIC Registrar at Adjudication@cic.org.uk
The consultation period ends on Friday 5 July 2019.
