The Construction Industry Council (CIC) is the representative forum for the professional bodies, research organisations and specialist business associations in the construction industry.


Adjudication is a process designed to help resolve disputes cheaply and efficiently. Section 108 of the Construction Act (or the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 in full), provides parties to a contract with a right to a legal statutory right to resolution by adjudication. If the contract does not contain an adjudication procedure then the parties may apply to CIC to nominate an adjudicator from the CIC Register of Adjudicators.

CIC is also a leading Adjudicator Nominating Body (ANB) accepting applications from adjudicators who are registered with CIarb, CIOB, ICE, RIBA, RICS and TeSCA.
