The Office of the Pubs Code Adjudicator (PCA) has calculated that the average wait from the date of a referral to a case being accepted for arbitration is six days.

There is no typical time a case takes to complete, as the duration of each Pubs Code arbitration turns on the facts of the individual case, on the issues in dispute and factors such as whether the case is stayed at the agreement of the parties for negotiations and whether the parties request an oral hearing. The Office of the PCA has calculated that the average time from a case being accepted to being concluded, including the final costs stage, is seven months.
