On 9 November 2018, the Government Gazette published the Standard for Minimum Requirements for Engaging Contractors and Sub-Contractors on Construction Works Contracts.
This Standard was Gazetted due to a marked increase in disputes in the Construction Industry in the past few years. The majority of these disputes are a result of a lack of utilization of correct contracts between the contracting parties.
