An architect or engineer exercising jurisdiction to certify under a contract must act impartially and independently1. In addition he will owe a duty to the employer to carry out the certification procedure with reasonable skill and care and will be liable to him for any loss caused by his negligence2. However, he is unlikely to be liable for loss caused to the contractor3.
Once the jurisdiction has been conferred on the certifier, in the absence of an express provision in the contract, it cannot be revoked
