It looks after all issues and matters relating to adjudication that affect CIC’s members. This includes maintaining the CIC’s register of adjudicators and making nominations, overseeing the publication and updating of the CIC model adjudication procedure, and collecting and publishing data on adjudication.
CIC is reviewing the remit of its adjudications services and working on a new constitution for the ANB management board. With a new chairman in place, CIC will now be inviting its member organisations to consider their representation on the ANB management board, with appointments being made by the CIC executive board.
