Liability Panel Risk Management Briefings

Currently, there are twenty one Risk Management Briefings which cover aspects of liability pertinent to those in the construction professions and allied bodies. These publications are continually reviewed and updated. Research is currently being carried out to find out, if there is scope for a new Risk Management Briefing on the subject of reliance letters.
