Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment laws survey

Security of Payment laws give contractors and subcontractors the right to ‘progress payments’ for work delivered. We invite your views on the laws in this survey, which will inform a full review of the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act in late 2015.

What are the laws for?
The laws are designed to ensure that contractors and subcontractors are paid promptly, moving cash down the contracting chain faster. They should also ensure that disputes over payments can be resolved quickly and fairly.

How will this survey support the review?
The survey results will help support a complete review of the Act by NSW Fair Trading. This will include a discussion paper for public consultation (anticipated in late 2015). The discussion paper will give industry and the community an opportunity to provide their views on these laws in more detail.

The survey takes around 10 minutes to complete. You do not have to answer every question.

The survey closes on 25 September 2015. For further Security of Payment information, please refer to our Security of payment page.
