Update on the Society of Construction Law Delay and Disruption Protocol - what's new, what's better?

Update on the Society of Construction Law Delay and Disruption Protocol - what's new, what's better?

A webinar presented by the IBA International Construction Projects Committee of the Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Law Section (SEERIL)

7 OCT 2020 1500 – 1630 BST

The Society of Construction Law’s (SCL) Delay and Disruption Protocol was first published in 2002. As per SCL’s own statements, the protocol exists to provide guidance to all parties to the construction process when dealing with delay and disruption matters. It recognises that transparency of information and methodology is central to both dispute prevention and dispute resolution. The intention was to provide a scheme whereby delay could be better controlled and managed during the construction process.

Following the publication of an intermediary update, known as Rider 1, on 1 July 2015, in February 2017 the Second Edition of the Protocol was released.

Since its first edition, the Protocol has gained significant visibility and popularity primarily in the UK but also in the Middle East, Australia, Hong Kong and the USA.

This session will provide an overview of the main features of the Protocol, explore the key elements or aspects that have been updated in the latest edition and hopefully open a discussion on the potential applicability to new jurisdictions across the world.
