The Construction Contracts Act 2004 (CCA) is an important piece of legislation for the building and construction industry in Western Australia. On 15 December 2016 important changes to the CCA commenced operation. These were the biggest changes since the CCA first commenced operation in 2005. The broad scope of the construction contracts that the CCA covers means that it’s important that all participants in the building and construction industry are aware of the changes. This online seminar covers what the CCA is, a brief background on the changes, what the key changes are, and possible future changes.
