Clyde and Co. Update on Class Actions Against Manufacturers of Combustible ACP Cladding
The class actions are open to property owners, owners’ corporations and long-term lease-holders who have suffered, or will suffer financial loss due to the need to remove and replace the ACPs. The class actions seek compensation for owners of residential, commercial, mixed-use, and other non-residential buildings throughout Australia on which those ACP products have been used.  Orders have been made permitting class members to opt out.
A key issue in the class action proceedings is how the manufacturers can prosecute contribution claims against the builders, designers and certifiers involved in the development of each building. A novel feature of these class action proceedings is the very large number of potential contribution claims  that could be made by the manufacturers and the complexity of those claims.  There are thousands of buildings across all Australian States that fall within the classes, each developed with its own unique design and construction teams under unique contractual arrangements.  The identity of the contribution targets are not within the knowledge of the manufacturers and cannot realistically be obtained without the assistance of the building owners that are within the classes.  Thus, the manufacturers in the Alucobond proceeding recently applied for orders requiring class members to register their claims and provide information that will assist in identifying contribution targets.
