German term or phrase:zu Grunde legen
Does this mean use as a basis for or NOT use (like put down/lay down)
"Wird die VOB/B zu Grunde gelegt, werden die gesetzlichen Werkvertragsregeln der §§631 ff BGB durch die VOB/B Ausführungen ersetzt."
If the VOB/B is used, the regulations of the service contract regulations §§631 ff BGB will be replced by the stipulations of the VOB/B.
Anyone know what that curious /B on the end is? it is annoying me.
