The ADRIC-RICS Construction Adjudication Program:
A Model Framework for Canada, Training and Designations
ADRIC and its partner, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), have developed a new Model Framework for Construction Adjudication across Canada to set the standard for the management and administration of this new field of ADR in Canada.
Based on years of public consultation in Ontario and at the Federal level, legislation and regulations for statutory interim adjudication are now in effect or soon to be in many provinces. The ADRIC-RICS Model Framework provides comprehensive guidance for all jurisdictions in Canada to achieve an ADR system that will be consistent across the country, based on the 95% success achieved since the first introduction of interim adjudication in the UK 25 years ago.
Upcoming free webinar: Construction Adjudication in Infrastructure Contracts – Perspectives from Four Adjudicators – June 25, 2021, 11am to 12:30 pm ET.
