404 – Managing FIDIC Contracts (Red and Yellow Books)

The International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) has, over the years, issued a number of standard documents for use on construction projects. The contracts which are currently in most common use around the world are:

The Conditions of Contract for Construction (The 1999 Red Book); The Conditions of Contract for Plant and Design-Build (The 1999 Yellow Book); The Conditions of Contract for EPC Turnkey Projects (The 1999 Silver Book).

FIDIC Contracts have become the standard form of contract most commonly used in construction worldwide. FIDIC models represent a safe vehicle for the realization of international investment, especially in EPC projects and contracted projects under the concept of design and construction.

Some of the most important  international projects  have been used or use this type of contracts.  Most of  the projects funded by the European Union also uses this model of contract.

This course is recommended for profesionals   involved  in  the tendering, contracting, procurement, and implementation of international construction projects, taking in account the contract’s  obligations  have a  relevant influence in all departments.
