About the Adjudicator Registry
ODACC is responsible for certifying Adjudicators and for maintaining a public record of qualified Adjudicators (s. 13.3 of the Construction Act). Only Adjudicators listed in the Adjudicator Registry are permitted to conduct adjudications and make Determinations under the Construction Act. All adjudications that are commenced under the Construction Act must proceed through ODACC.
Section 6.2 of Ontario Regulation 306/18 lists the information that ODACC must display on the Adjudicator Registry:
6.(2) The Authority shall ensure that the adjudicator registry includes every holder of a certificate of qualification to adjudicate and, in relation to each listed holder, includes,
- the holder’s contact information;
- the period of validity of the holder’s certificate;
- the holder’s areas of expertise for the purposes of adjudication, number of years of relevant working experience in the construction industry and every professional body of which the holder is a member in good standing;
- the geographical areas in which the holder conducts adjudications; and
- any other information that the Minister directs be included in order to assist persons in selecting an adjudicator.
Once certified, Adjudicators will be invited to create a profile on ODACC’s Custom System. The profile will be displayed on the Adjudicator Registry. Further details will be communicated with Adjudicators via email.
Change of Information
Adjudicators must notify ODACC via email at firstname.lastname@example.org of any change in information related to their hourly rate, flat fee rates and geographical areas. Other changes made to Adjudicators’ profiles may be submitted through ODACC’s Custom System.
Pursuant to s. 4(d) of Ontario Regulation 306/18, if an Adjudicator ceases to be eligible to hold a certificate, the Adjudicator must notify ODACC immediately in writing at email@example.com. Pursuant to s. 5.(1)(a) of Ontario Regulation 306/18, an Adjudicator may cease to be eligible to hold a certificate if the Adjudicator does not meet the requirements under sections 3 or 4 of Ontario Regulation 306/18 or if the Adjudicator fails to comply with the Code of Conduct.
