Bus/Financial - Law: Contract(s)
English term or phrase: diligence
"DILIGENCE and fairness in contracts
Contracts and work assignments shall be performed
according to which is established by the parties.
In order to ensure proper and fair management of
contractual relations, XXX refrains from taking any
advantage of its dominant position, with regard to
contractors; furthermore, XXX commits itself in providing
accurate and exhaustive information to each employee and
third parties involved by the above mentioned contracts."

Ett par funderingar:

Gäller "diligence" en relation till själva avtalet - t.ex. efterlevnaden av avtalet - eller gäller det en relation till det som avtalet handlar om - t.ex. utförandet av de åtaganden man gör i avtalet?

Vad tror ni om "sorgfällighet"?

agree  Charlotte Andersson: Diligence = försiktighet / aktsamhet / varsamhet / omsorg. Begreppet "Due diligence" är allmänt vedertaget bland svenska jurister och ekonomer. Jag tolkar det som att "diligence" gäller utförandet av åtagandena som stadgas i avtalet.
