Set out in this section are a series of template documents, which comply with the requirements of the NZDRC Adjudication Rules, which you may download and use free of charge. This library is regularly updated to ensure our forms and precedents remain current and comply with any statutory amendments.

To use contractual adjudication to resolve your dispute, you first need an agreement to submit your dispute to that process. If you have the NZDRC Model Adjudication Clause in your contract you can rely on that. However, if you do not, parties can still agree to submit their dispute to contractual adjudication by completing and signing the NZDRC Adjudication Agreement.
