Could anyone help me with the meaning of longstop date. The context is labor relationships, contracts, etc.

A translation into Spanish or just the definition could help me a lot.

Thanks in advance.

Fernando.
Hi,

If you google this, you get a handful of references.

I'm not sure of the definition. It seems to be 'the final date on which something, like an offer or a regulation, finally expires'. If so, I wonder why they don't say 'expiry date'? But, I could be wrong here.

Best wishes, Clive

That's all I could find, too: the latest date by which the negotiations should be completed.

Really? It is not a term I have met when preparing contracts. Can you give exact context?

It is used a lot in conveyancing in Scotland
It would seem to be specific to conveyancing. It also is not common - Google only produces 1370 references to the term, many of which are repetitions. It does not appear as a phrase in the British National Corpus.

Longstop date would be translated as "fecha límite", and is usually used in FEED (Front End Engineering Designe) - EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) Contracts. It is the date by which some aspect must be completed.
