Adjudication: jurisdiction of the adjudicator

This note considers an adjudicator's conduct of the adjudication process and, in particular, the adjudicator's jurisdiction. It explains the grounds and procedure for challenging jurisdiction and explains a party's options, once the challenge has been made.

This note should be read in conjunction with Practice note, Adjudication: reserving your jurisdiction rights, which explains how and when a party should reserve its position on jurisdiction.
