NEC ECC: is justification required along with a notification of a 60.1(19) event
A Contractor has notified via cl. 61.3 of his belief of a cl. 60.1(19) event occurring. The event has not stopped the works outright so therefore cannot meet the test of the first bullet of 60.1(19). The PM assumes that that the Contractor is claiming that the event has stopped them completing the works b y the date in the Accepted Programme (AP). Ignoring the other 3 tests of the 60.1(19) [bullets 4,5 & 6) is the Contractor required at the stage of notification to demonstrate his claim that the works won't be complete by the date on the AP? Surely the only way this can be demonstrated is for them to provide a updated AP showing the effects of the event. How can the PM determine the validity of their claim for 60.1(19) without this?
