Update on the South Australia Security of Payment legislation

Articles Written by Jessica Teoh (Associate)

In the May 2011 edition of Acumen, we reported that the commencement of the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 2009 (SA) had been delayed, and that the Act and regulations were likely to commence at the end of 2011.

The Office of Consumer and Business Affairs has proposed a timetable for implementing the Act which willl result in the regulations being approved and gazetted in August, and the Act commencing operation by 9 December 2011.
