Webinar 6: Duty of Care When Providing Services. A webinar considering the important distinction between the ‘duty of care’ required in providing (a) services or (b) goods.  Goods fall under a ‘fit for purpose’ requirement of the Sale of Goods Act. Whereas provision of services falls under a requirement for ‘reasonable skill and care’ under the Supply of Goods and Services Act. These standards are fundamentally different and the webinar will explain why and how consultants giving advice or providing designs should make sure that their contract  gets this right.
