A recent Scottish case, which is only persuasive in England, has decided that where a party bringing an adjudication did not apply to the nominating body stated in the contract, but for some reason applied to an alternative nominating body, the appointed adjudicator did not have jurisdiction. The moral of this tale is to make sure you know who the nominating body is in the contract. Some of the more usual ones are the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Technology and Construction Solicitors Association (TECSA).
