The Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Ordinance already came into operation on 1 January 2016. The Ordinance allows a third party to enforce rights under a contract. The speakers will give an outline of the Ordinance and highlight the conditions that must be satisfied for the application of this Ordinance.

The proposed Security of Payment Legislation (“SOPL”), on the other hand, has yet to be submitted to and passed by the Legco. The SOPL, when passed and enacted as an ordinance, will provide an alternative for the construction industry in payment mechanism and dispute resolution. The speakers will address on the scope, procedures and application of the SOPL together with some case studies for illustration purpose.
