Technical deviations are deviations from drawings, specifications and other technical requirements.

Possible deviations should be proposed and agreed before they are implemented. In case they impact on cost and/or schedule then the Variation procedure shall be followed first.

Sometimes technical deviations are requested for work already performed incorrectly. Such situation can be either be corrected under redo obligation or can be accepted (if possible).

A Technical deviation is requested through a Technical Query form (free download).
