French term or phrase: agrément "en blanc"
This term is used in a contract about a building programme. The company is to make a "demande d'agrément constructeur (agrément "en blanc")pour 33.000 m2 SHON..." Italics in original.
Any ideas?
TIA

blank acceptance?
Explanation:
Hi, Mary,

In both the Dictionnaire Economique et Juridique (Navarre) and the Robert/Collins Management/Law dictionary, I found "acceptation en blanc" and the translation, "blank acceptance." Plus the Navarre dictionary defines "agrement" as "acceptance." I have no idea what it means, though!

Talk to you later,
Karen

Definition of blank acceptance


Explanation:
It's me again. I found a definition of "blank acceptance" in Black's Law Dictionary: "an acceptance of a bill of exchange written on the paper before the bill is made, and delivered by the acceptor." Hope that helps. Karen

a business proposal of sorts.


Explanation:
Blanc is used as a preparational term....For ex. le bac blanc is done in prep for the bacalaureate. It is a sample agreement possibly to be approved...edited for terms of agreement...and thus later redrawn as a mutually agreed contract.
