A roundtable discussion will be held between stakeholders to progress work on the project scope for the new Australian Standards for General Conditions of Contract.
On 6 November 2017, Standards Australia brought together a group of industry, government, legal and construction sector stakeholders to discuss the development of a new general conditions of contract standard in Australia.
Participating stakeholders agreed that current Australian Standards for general conditions of contract could better meet market needs.
Broad agreement was reached on a way forward that will see Standards Australia, industry and government working together to expedite a new project.
Representatives of industry and government organisations agreed to consult with their members generally on principles and scope of a new standard in preparation for the next roundtable.
Standards Australia will invite additional relevant interested organisations and broaden stakeholder participation at the next roundtable.
