In October 2020 NEC published a second set of amendments to the June 2017 suite of NEC4
Contracts.  The amendments were published to reflect legal developments and in response to user and industry feedback on the newly published NEC4 suite as well as suggestions for further enhancements.
This online webinar will be providing the opportunity to explain these amendments in more detail - why they were introduced and the key changes – as well as allowing NEC users’ to ask any questions they have to our panel of experts. 
This engaging and interactive session will provide an ideal platform for anyone who wanted further clarification on the recent changes or who wanted to submit further feedback. If you are interested in joining, please remember that NEC Users’ Group members enjoy free and discounted spaces to our online event programme, so please consider joining if you haven’t already.
