Decoding reasonable skill and care, and fitness for purpose, London

About this event

This talk will review the difference between "reasonable skill and care" obligations and "fitness for purpose" obligations, particularly with regard to recent case law arising from engineering work, and why the difference is important to professional engineers.

It will consider how these obligations can arise and briefly what can be done to mitigate or contain the effect of the obligations.
