Have your say

The Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Amendment Act 2018 (the Amendment Act) was assented to on 28 November 2018. The Amendment Act contains reforms to promote cash flow in the supply chain, increase transparency of payments and provide greater protections to subcontractors.

The Amendment Act has not commenced. Some of the reforms require subordinate legislation and administrative changes before they can be implemented. Other reforms are likely to impose significant changes to industry practices which means that it would be appropriate to provide a transitional period before they commence.

The Options Paper for the Security of Payment Reforms – Implementation proposes various options for commencing each reform and seeks feedback on that approach. We will also use this opportunity to seek initial feedback on the matters that will be included in the amending Regulation. Further information on how to make a submission is detailed in the Options Paper.
