Government backs CLC contractual guidance
07 May 2020
Following the release of best practice guidance by the Construction Leadership Council on minimising contractual disputes, the Government has issued its own supportive guidance.
The CLC guidance, developed by its coronavirus taskforce, of which ECA is a member, outlines the types of issues that are likely to arise, together with practical advice on how to resolve them in a constructive manner.
The Government document outlines its behavioural expectations between businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.
“We welcome the endorsement of our approach from the UK Government in its Guidance on responsible contractual behaviour in the performance and enhancement of contracts impacted by the Covid-19 emergency”, commented Andy Mitchell CBE, co-Chair of the Construction Leadership Council.
