The use of a Dispute Review Board (DRB) on major projects has substantial support on projects worldwide and in Australia. Several major world-wide standard form agreements now include DRB clauses. The statistics on the minimal number of disputes coming out of projects with a DRB is compelling. A number of academic studies have been published in this area. The substantive conclusion from the above is that DRBs are used widely on major projects, with great success in reducing construction contract disputes.
