NEC3 PSC Compensation Events (CE) Template

Use this free downloadable template to help you create a compensation event notification under the NEC3 Professional Services Contract (PSC).

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

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

You can use these NEC3 PSC templates for notifying the following compensation events:
