Devon & Cornwall Regional Group's 2019 Annual General Meeting followed by a talk on:  'A structural engineer's day.  How certain risks of incurring liability may arise and be addressed'.

Ian Wright will present a brief overview of certain matters, which may arise in day-to-day practice during the design process, in respect of which the structural engineer needs to be alert in order to recognise how risks of incurring legal liability may arise and be addressed.

The talk will include consideration of terms of appointment and the incorporation of express terms or terms that may be implied at common law or by legislation in the appointment; design obligations and the standard to be achieved (reasonable skill and care or a higher standard); the requirement to verify design assumptions; design interfaces; reviewing designs undertaken by others; and dealing with changes to the brief and record keeping.
