JCT D&B 2016 Relevant Matter Clauses

Is an Extension of Time under Clause 2.26.13 a Relevant Matter

clause 2.26.13 (“delay in receipt of any necessary permission or approval of any statutory body which the Contractor has taken all practicable steps to avoid or reduce”) is a “Relevant Event” which the Contractor has to notify in order to be granted extension of time.

“Relevant Matters” are listed in clause 4.21 and are associated with Loss and Expense.

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your response.

I do not see Clause 2.26.13 as a L/E matter, am I correct in this statement

Absolutely Phil,

It is a Relevant Event, not a Relevant Matter.

Thank you Peter much appreciated
