Event: Are you ready for the 30 September 2021 COTMA deadline?
Format: Zoom webinar
Date: Tuesday, 21 September 2021
Time: 10:00AM – 11:00AM

RHTLaw Asia and FTI Consulting are delighted to invite you to the webinar “Are you ready for the 30 September 2021 COTMA deadline?“.

Although the construction industry was one of the first to return to work in August 2020, it continues to face difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in delays and disruptions and the consequent time and costs overruns. The government introduced various reliefs through the COVID-19 Temporary Measures Act (COTMA), alongside other programmes sponsored by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and Ministry of Manpower (MOM). However, with the COTMA Prescribed Period due to expire on 30 September 2021, the moratorium on legal action will be lifted. Are you ready for the 30 September deadline?

In this session, RHTLaw and FTI Consulting will guide you through the key points you need to know to make sure you do not miss out:

  • Reliefs available under COTMA, contract and common law
  • The interplay between COTMA and your construction contract (reference to PSSCOC and SIA forms)
  • Extension of time beyond 122 days under Part 8A COTMA
  • Additional prolongation costs beyond Part 8B COTMA
  • Practical tips on quantifying and supporting time and cost claims
  • Managing delays and disruption caused by COVID-19

We hope to have the pleasure of your participation!
