Jointly with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, The IET issues a range of model forms of general conditions of contract and some separate guides (known as ‘commentaries’) to their use.
These are model forms of contract for electrical and mechanical work and consultancy. The contents of these publications are decided by a joint committee of IET/IMechE members and others representing the various interests of the electrical and mechanical engineering industries.
There are four primary publications in the series with associated commentaries. MF/1, MF/2 and MF/4 cover home and overseas contracts; MF/3 is for home contracts only.
“Home” contracts include those under the laws of England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.
