This is a paper given to the Romanian Society of Construction Law at their inaugural conference from 19 to 21 March 2015. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the participants at the conference to statutory dispute resolution in the United Kingdom. Statutory adjudication, which was introduced by the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 and came into force for all construction contracts in the United Kingdom entered into after 1 May 1998 has been a highly successful method of resolving disputes in the construction industry. The author is someone who has been heavily involved in adjudication. This paper introduces the delegates to adjudication and strongly recommends that they give consideration to it as a way and means of resolving disputes in the construction industry quickly. He also looks briefly at dispute boards and how in the UK dispute boards can be compatible with the requirements of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (as recently amended in 2011).
