Construction inspection fines have been amended significantly in Hungary
After three years, the regulations on the construction inspection fines had been conceptually amended again as of June and July 2016.
Although the amount of several construction inspection fines has been decreased, the new regulations led to significant changes in the fine in connection with the relationship of the general contractor and the subcontractor. In addition, the client shall also be subject to construction inspection fine for various unlawful activities during the construction works, for example, if the contractor refuses an unlawful instruction given by the client, provided that such statement of refusal is recorded in the construction log-book. In addition, from the beginning of July 2016, the design foreman can also be fined by the authority.
