Z-clauses are often used by unscrupulous contractors to make life very difficult for their subcontractors. In fact, in the worst-case scenario, we saw more than 100 pages of clause Z that completely flouted the NEC`s objectives. This contract is for all those who provide a service instead of performing physical work. Designers are the most obvious party that fits into this category. While creating a design for an employer or contractor, they would register and comply with the clauses within the PSC. Most of the clauses in this contract are the same or similar to those contained in the main ECC contract, so all contractors, designers and subcontractors have roughly the same obligations and processes that they must follow. In case the rules are ignored, you are the subcontractor who pays the fine for the loss of your rights. They must therefore systematically manage all early warning alerts and compensation events and responses/lack of answers/disagreements, etc. The NEC depends on the completion and agreement of all the different elements of the subcontracting data.

There is only a very small difference between the ECA and the ESC, except that the names of the parties (contractors and subcontractors) are changed and some contractual response deadlines are modified to take account of the deadlines required by the ECA Treaty. . . .
