Timetable for Security for Payment Reform in Western Australia

    View Author October 2021

    In September 2021, the WA government released its Action Plan for the implementation of the Building and Construction Industry (Security of Payment) Act 2021 (WA) (SOP Act). As advised in our June 2021 publication, “Security of Payment Reform in Western Australia – What to Expect and What You Will Need to Do Differently”, the SOP Act represents a major departure from the current security for payment regime in WA.

    The Action Plan outlines the key changes in the SOP Act and introduces a three-stage plan for the commencement of its operative parts.
