In Malaysia, most of the construction disputes are resolved through arbitration and statutory adjudication. According to the statistics from the AIAC, majority of the domestic arbitrations registered with the centre concerned the resolution of construction disputes. In the realm of statutory adjudication, the number of cases registered with the AIAC have seen a steady growth since the inception of CIPAA 2012, and it is expected the number of cases registered with the AIAC will reach 1000 in year 2020. It is therefore not an understatement to say that a change in the law and practice of arbitration and statutory adjudication will have a significant impact on the Construction ADR users and other stakeholders.
