 SAL Prac 15
Parliament amended the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act (the “SOP Act”) in 2018. Although the amendments are not in effect yet, they will materially affect potential claimants and respondents.
The amendments also incorporate the decisions of major cases regarding the existing SOP Act and clarify many of the issues raised. This article considers those cases, as well as the implication of the amendments on claimants and respondents.
