​NEC4 PRACTICE NOTE 3 - Implementing the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR)

This note provides guidance on the information that needs to be included in an NEC contract which includes the processing of personal data as defined in the GDPR in order to comply with Article 28. 
NOTE: Similar provisions are needed in the Works Information or equivalent of an NEC3 contract which requires the processing of personal data. The terms should be changed to reflect the defined terms in the appropriate NEC3 contract.
If an NEC3 or NEC4 contract has already been awarded, the Scope (or equivalent) may need to be changed to add in any of these provisions that are not already covered by the contract. Such a change would be a compensation event.
