The Construction Contracts Act, 2013 provides for a number of written notices and the Act sets out the requirements for those notices. The Act and the Code of Practice Governing the Conduct of Adjudications does not prescribe the mandatory use of forms for the purposes of these notices.
An Executing party is required to serve a Payment Claim Notice on the Other party to the construction contract, no later than 5 days after the payment claim date.
If the Other party contests that the amount claimed by the Executing party is due and payable, the Other party is required to respond in writing to the Executing party, no later than 21 days after the payment claim date. Either party has the right to refer the payment dispute for adjudication. In order to exercise this right, a Notice of Intention to refer the Payment Dispute for Adjudication should be served. These notices are required to be served in respect of each individual payment dispute.
The Construction Contracts Adjudication Service is providing the template forms below for guidance only. A party to a construction contract may choose to use any of these template forms; however it is their responsibility to ensure that the form used is appropriate for their particular circumstance. A party may modify any of the template forms below as appropriate.
No liability for any loss incurred by a party to a construction contract shall attach to the Minister of State, the Chairperson of the Construction Contracts Adjudication Panel or the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation arising from the use of any of these forms in the attachments below.
If an applicant is applying to have an Adjudicator appointed by the Chairperson to a number of payment disputes arising under the same construction contract, separate applications must be submitted for each individual payment dispute.
An applicant may apply to the Chairperson using an Electronic version of the application form. If this option is selected the applicant will be requested by the Construction Contracts Adjudication Service to attach the accompanying documents using a secure web link.
An applicant also has the option of submitting the application with the accompanying documents, using the Word version of the application form, by post to the address at the bottom of that form. The application may also be submitted by fax to the number shown at the bottom of the Word version of the application form.
The applicant is required to send a copy of the application form and the accompanying documentation to the Respondent Party/Parties at the same time the application is submitted to the Chairperson, whether the Electronic version or the Word version of the application form is used.
