If it is unclear who should bear a loss during the execution of a construction project, the violation of inspection and warning obligations is often cited in the field. Testing and warning obligations can actually be the saving anchor, but it is also clear that they are subject to limits and are often misunderstood. This makes it all the more important for building owners and contractors to have a correct understanding of the scope of the inspection and warning obligations.

  • Who, when and to what extent do professionals have to warn?
  • What are the tasks of architects, specialist planners (such as structural engineers) and local construction supervisors?
  • What does "technical solidarity" mean?
  • What does a bidder already have to point out in the context of a call for tenders?
  • How must a builder-owner react to warnings from the contractor?
  • What are the consequences of a breach of the inspection and warning obligations?
  • What is the relationship between the inspection and warning obligations and additional cost claims?
