Construction Services Liability
At the time of writing, a number of proposals relating to liability for services are being considered by the European Commission. The most important of these proposals is a draft Directive on liability of suppliers of services. If implemented this will have an important impact on the civil liability of professional persons. The exact scope of this draft Directive had still to be determined in 1993 and it seemed likely that suppliers of construction services (i.e. contractors, architects, engineers, etc.) will be exempted from its provisions. These professions are likely to come within the scope of a proposal for harmonising construction liability.
