New security of payment legislation will affect some practices of principals, contractors and subcontractors that have become market norms in the construction sector.


Many market participants will need to change their standard contracts and contract administration processes in response to the new law.

The Building and Construction Industry (Security of Payment) Act 2021 (WA) (SOP Act) received Royal Assent on 25 June 2021. The SOP Act replaces the Construction Contracts Act 2004 (WA) (CCA) with respect to construction contracts entered after the SOP Act commences operation.

The operative parts of the SOP Act will come into force on a date to be proclaimed (expected to be imminent). Some of the key changes include:

a statutory right to progress payments with prescribed maximum payment terms;

  • introduction of a payment schedule regime;

  • introduction of a minimum rate of interest on late progress payments;

  • introduction of trusts for retention money

  • a requirement to issue notice before having recourse to performance security;

  • prohibition of ‘pay when paid’ provisions extended;

  • invalidity of ‘unfair’ time bars; and

  • a narrowing of the mining exemption.

Andrew will  discuss ;

1)    Contract Terms: Changes to and introduction of standard terms and obligations under construction contracts; and
2)    Adjudication: Changes to the payment claim system and the adjudication of payment disputes and the above 

Who should participate?

Directors Duties under the WHS Act

Cost : Introductory Offer $135pp

Min 5 (if 5 people do not attend then price still applies for 5 persons ) 

Time : 2.5hrs 

The Work Health and Safety Act 2020 has been passed by the WA Parliament and will come into effect in either late 2021 or earlier 2022.


This Act inserts very specific due diligence obligations for all directors and officers. There is no distinction between executive or non-executive directors or whether the role is paid or voluntary.


The obligations are really an exercise in reducing into writing what directors and officers are required to do now, and what would be necessary to defend a charge. However, there is now very clear guidance as to what each director or officer is required to do.

The presenter will discuss those duties  with participants and discuss what sort of steps can be taken to meet those duties.

Who should attend? 

Safety Managers, Safety Representatives and Business Owners, Project managers
