Details :

NEC is often promoted as being clear and simple. Has NEC been able to achieve that purpose? The objective of this talk is to highlight potential interpretation problems in NEC. This talk will analyse the topic with particular focus on important provisions such as Core Clause 10.1 (“spirit of mutual trust and co-operation”) and administering compensation events. The talk will also highlight potential pitfalls in the wordings used in NEC in comparison with traditional forms of contracts.
