Abstract
In this paper I have investigated the duty of notification in the Nordic standard contracts for contracting. The four agreements I have dealt with in my essay are AB 04, AB 92, AB 18 and NS 8405. The purpose of the thesis is to clarify the obligation to notify in the said standard agreements since they are very extensive and different in their design. My second goal was to clarify the differences between the various agreements and to carry out an analysis of how a potential future AB agreement might deal with the notification obligation. A shorter review of the duty of loyalty and its use was carried out to show where the notification obligation originated. The agreement in addition to AB 04 is the neighbouring countries Denmark and... (More)

A shorter review of the duty of loyalty and its use was carried out to show where the notification obligation originated. The agreement in addition to AB 04 is the neighbouring countries Denmark and Norway's agreement. Like Sweden, they have a similar standard agreement with a similar design and an additional notification obligation. The most comprehensive review of the duty to notify has been made by AB 04. In that part I go through what penalties it can be if a party forgets to notify under given conditions. In addition to the more thorough review, I have outlined the Danish agreement in which AB 18 replaces the old agreement AB 92 since the beginning of the year. The choice of addressing both agreements is because I have, with a legal-analytical method, compared the development of the obligation of intelligence and analysed it together with a court case from the Supreme Court where they obtained guidance from Nordic contracts. The result of the paper was that I discovered ambiguities in how obligations to notify are treated between different authors and how they are handled between the different countries based on the idea that there should instead be a duty of cooperation and a duty of loyalty between the parties which constitute what AB 04 would qualify as an intelligence obligation. Finally, I concluded that the obligation may not be as prominent in a subsequent AB agreement, on the grounds that it is far too great a difference between the agreements and a lack of legal cases on the subject to find guidance.

I den här uppsatsen har jag undersökt underrättelseskyldigheten i de nordiska standardavtalen för entreprenad. De fyra avtalen jag har behandlat i min uppsats är AB 04, AB 92, AB 18 samt NS 8405. Uppsatsen syfte är att klargöra underrättelseskyldigheten i de nämnda standardavtalen då de är väldigt omfattande och olika i sin utformning. Mitt andra mål var att klargöra skillnaderna mellan de olika avtalen samt genomföra en analys för hur ett potentiellt framtida AB-avtal kan komma att behandla underrättelseskyldigheten. En kortare genomgång av lojalitetsplikten och dess användning utfördes för att visa var underrättelseskyldigheten härstammar ifrån. Avtalen utöver AB 04 är grannländerna Danmark och Norges avtal. Precis som Sverige har de ett liknande standardavtal med en liknande utformning samt en tillkommande underrättelseskyldighet. Den mest omfattande genomgången av underrättelsesplikten har skett av AB 04. I den delen går jag igenom vilka påföljder det kan bli ifall en part glömmer att underrätta under givna förutsättningar.
Jag har utöver, den mer grundliga genomgången, redogjort för det danska avtalet där AB 18 ersätter det gamla avtalet AB 92 sedan årsskiftet. Valet av att ta upp båda avtalen är för att jag har, med en rättsanalytisk metod, jämfört underrättelseskyldighetens utveckling och analyserat det tillsammans med ett rättsfall från Högsta Domstolen där de inhämtade vägledning från nordiska avtal inom entreprenad.
Resultatet av uppsatsen blev att jag upptäckte otydligheter i hur underrättelseskyldigheter behandlas mellan olika författare samt hur de hanteras mellan de olika länderna utifrån idén att det istället ska föreligga en samarbetsplikt och lojalitetsplikt mellan parterna som utgör vad AB 04 skulle kvalificera som underrättelseskyldighet.
Till sist kom jag fram till att skyldigheten kanske inte blir lika framträdande i ett efterföljande AB-avtal med grund i att den är alldeles för stor skillnad mellan avtalen och en avsaknad av rättsfall på ämnet för att finna vägledning. (Less)
