    "PAY NOW TALK LATER"
    by
    MICHELLE LIM WAN FOONG

    IN THIS ARTICLE, MICHELLE LIM WAN FOONG HIGHLIGHTS THE IMPORTANCE OF INTERPRETING THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY PAYMENT AND ADJUDICATION ACT 2012 IN LIGHT OF ITS LEGISLATIVE PURPOSE

    Introduction

    Protracted and drawn-out payment disputes have persistently led to cash flow problems in the construction industry. The Construction Industry Payment and Adjudication Act 2012 (“CIPAA”) introduced adjudication as a mechanism to provide speedy provisional resolution for such disputes. Nevertheless, despite the CIPAA’s focus on the speedy resolution of such disputes by adjudication, section 16 of the CIPAA provides circumstances where a stay of an adjudication decision may be appropriate. The limited scope where a stay may be granted under section 16 makes it a unique provision that has no equivalent in other jurisdictions with comparable statutory adjudication regimes.

    In Arkema Thiochemicals Sdn Bhd v. Foster Wheeler E & C (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (unreported), one of the early cases applying the CIPAA, the Malaysian courts once again emphasised the importance of interpreting the CIPAA in light of its legislative purpose.
