Launch of the new Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes

WHEN:  2 November 2016 | 6pm

WHERE:  Rolls Building | Super Court

REGISTER TO ATTEND:  msparkes@keatingchambers.com

The last Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes came into force in October 2000, and was amended in 2007. A new Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes has been prepared (jointly by TECBAR and TeCSA) which is presently expected to come into force on 9 November 2016.

A launch will take place at the Rolls Building at 6pm on 2 November 2016 at which the new Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes will be unveiled, and copies made available. Mr Justice Coulson will provide a Keynote Address, and Alexander Nissen QC and Simon Tolson will then speak on behalf of TECBAR and TeCSA. Drinks and canapes will follow at around 7pm. Since the capacity of one of the “super Courts” will limit numbers, you need to register for the launch, by emailing msparkes@keatingchambers.com, if you wish to attend.

The new Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes will then appear on the TECBAR and TeCSA websites for downloading. Note that the new Protocol is expected to come into force on 9 November 2016.

As well as making significant amendments to the former Protocol, including as to when the Protocol can be disapplied altogether, the new Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes introduces the “Protocol Referee Procedure” whereby parties who have agreed to sign up to that procedure may seek directions from the Protocol Referee to assist the parties participating in and complying with the Protocol and/or to assist resolution of any non-compliance with the Protocol. The Protocol Referees will be appointed alternately by TECBAR and TeCSA.
