NEC ECC: cl 50.1 - assessing the amount due

The Contractor has not submitted an Application for Payment prior the assessment date

Under 50.1 it is the PM’s responsibility to assess the amount due at each assessment date (even if no AfP has been received)

PM has made an assessment of the interim payment which is zero

Question is… Does the PM still need to raise a Payment Certificate for the amount of Zero or can the PM inform the Contractor there will be no payment by email communication.

I have presumed that the contract falls under the Construction Act.

Yes, a payment certificate is required to advise of the Notified Sum even if £0.
