Updated Subcontract Agreement: SA-2017

The SA-2009 form of Subcontract Agreement is commonly used in the construction industry. It has undergone a review and a new SA-2017 form has been produced.

The 2017 version has been updated to comply with changes to the Construction Contracts Act 2002, and the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.   We recommend those in the industry familiarise themselves with the new SA-2017, and review their precedents and special conditions to ensure they are updated for the new version.
