Incase of contractor considering there is a need to deviate from any requirements of the ‘Base
Specification’ and this ‘Particular Specification’, he shall detail the matter and his reasoning, for the review
and consent of the Contractor’s Consultant.

In this ‘Particular Specification’, the actions in italics refer to the modifications in relation to the QCS.
