Statutory adjudication was introduced into the Security of Payment (SOP) legislation as a fast-track payment dispute resolution process aiming to achieve the object of the legislation to facilitate cash flow within the construction contractual chain. As such, adjudication determinations were usually released and enforced on a "pay now, argue later" 1 basis in order to protect a vulnerable class of smaller businesses within the building and construction industry. The SOP legislation was extremely successful in attaining the stated object in the context of small adjudicated payment claims where both parties used to comply with the adjudication determination.
