Are you a party to the NEC Contract? Are you wondering what steps you might need to take to protect yourself in the current climate? If you anticipate disruption, and let’s face it, in the current climate most will, subject to any amending clauses, in respect of early warnings, the majority of the standard form NEC contracts set out.
All parties should therefore examine all NEC contracts without delay as notice is required “as soon as either party is aware” and therefore could constitute a breach of contract or a waiver of rights if notification is delayed.
Whether these will ultimately constitute a Compensation Event falls outside the scope of this article.
