E. Non-Standard Terms (NST) Handling

In case a pre-generated “Standard Term” of a contract is not accepted by a counterparty (during negotiation) an NST-Workflow is started (automatically). The workflow summarizes all relevant NST information and requires approval. NSTs are tracked via clause version revision and a re-usage of approved NSTs in future contracts is foreseen.

In case no Legal opinion is in place the Legal Opinion Request Workflow takes care of a Legal Opinion Request.
