Details :

According to the Hong Kong Construction Industry Performance Report for 2011 issued by the Construction Industry Council in April 2013, there was a general trend of improvement in terms of summonses under the Factories and Industrial Undertakings Ordinance ("FIUO"). Yet, there appears to be a substantial increase in the number of industrial summonses issued this year against contractors.

This talk will cover these summonses including a discussion on a Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal judgment made in July this year which is relevant to a number of the sections of FIUO as well as the impact of such summonses on the projects concerned such as project delays. As a construction professional handling Hong Kong projects, you should attend this talk to understand these summonses and their impact.
