NEC4 dispute resolution options have been expanded to reflect the range of dispute avoidance and resolution mechanisms now in use on major projects worldwide.
NEC4 options W1 and W2 now include referral to senior representatives of the parties prior to the appointment of an adjudicator. A new option W3 provides for the use of a ‘Dispute Avoidance Board’ as an alternative to adjudication for contracts not subject to the UK Construction Act
This webinar will feature two members of the NEC4 Contract Board, to discuss the following topics:
- Dealing with disagreements – the contractual process, clauses 10.1 and 10.2
- Final assessment process
- Dispute avoidance
- Senior Representatives under W1 and W2
- W3 Dispute Avoidance Boards
- Dispute resolution
- Changes to W1 and W2
- The choice of and role of the tribunal
- An overview of the Dispute Resolution Services Contract
