ACEC is pleased to announce the release of its newly updated Document 31 -Prime Agreement between Client and Engineer. During the promotional period, the document will be free for both ACEC members and non-members. The document can be accessed on the ACEC website ( www.acec.ca) under publications.

The ACEC Document 31 outlines the key elements of the commercial relationship between a consulting engineering company and its client that is necessary for both a successful engineering consulting practice and a satisfied client.

Over the past six years, Document 31 has undergone an extensive revision by some of the most respected legal, insurance and managerial people in the engineering business. It carefully sets out the obligations of both parties to a consulting engineer assignment in Canada today. It avoids all-inclusive language. It defines the kind of liabilities and warranties that should reasonably be expected of an engineering company.

Information sessions on Document 31 are expected to take place in collaboration with our Memer Organizations throughout the year to get the document known and used.

The ACEC Contracts Committee has also developed a Guide for Document 31. It can be viewed free of charge on the ACEC website.

The French version of Document 31 and the Guide will be available in the early fall.

For questions concerning the document, please contact the ACEC office at 1-800-565-0569.
