The article discusses New Engineering Contract 3 (NEC3), the standard form of building contract launched in July 2005 in Great Britain. By virtue of recommendation by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, NEC3 is now the preferred contract in the nuclear sector and is currently being used in various decommissioning contracts. The most significant amendment in NEC3 relates to the obligation on the contractor to notify any claims or compensation events. It appears that clause 61.3 is a drafted as a condition precedent clause.
