FIDIC Engineering Contracts - 6 Essential Modules
The FIDIC standard form of contract was launched in 1957 and remains the contract form of choice for international engineering projects.
Known as the ‘rainbow suite’ FIDIC 1999 and now 2017 editions, are approved by the World Bank, and therefore appeal to projects funded in this way.
It is well-known that FIDIC is a robust and detailed contract, one which brings rigour to project delivery and contract management. It is a precise contract, which requires actions by the parties, many time-bound and strictly interpreted. It pays, therefore, to be well-versed in its processes and procedures.
Due to the extensive range of sectors within the ‘suite’ (turnkey/EPC/DBO etc. plus short forms), parties can choose the appropriate contract, and then tailor it to suit. Time, cost, and quality requirements are extensively catered for.
This 6 part modular webinar series will cover all the key points about FIDIC so you can start to get to grips with this form of contract and use it successfully as the basis for your projects.
