This Protocol has been prepared by the Society of Construction Law for determining extensions of time and compensation for delay and disruption. Published on October 16th 2002, It exists to provide guidance to all parties to the construction process when dealing with time/delay matters. It recognises that transparency of information and methodology is central to both dispute prevention and dispute resolution. You may download the Protocol here. Or you can purchase printed copies here.
Following the consultation period in April 2015 regarding the first part of the review of the SCL Delay and Disruption Protocol, the feedback has been considered by the review committee and Rider 1 to the Protocol has been finalised. A copy is available here.
Accordingly, when now considering the Protocol, please take care to take account of Rider 1 as well.
The review on the remainder of the issues in the terms of reference is ongoing. It is anticipated that a draft 2nd edition of the Protocol, which incorporates Rider 1 and the outcome of the remainder of the review, will be made available for public consultation towards the end of 2015.”
