Compensation events are events listed in the contract which, if they occur and do not arise from the Contractor’s fault, entitle the Contractor to be compensated for any effect the event may have on Prices, the Completion Date and any Key Dates.

The ECC contains strict notification and procedural requirements which take a compensation event from notification to implementation.
