About Course:

The 2
nd Edition of the FIDIC Rainbow Suite contains much improvements compared to the 1999 1st Edition. Whilst considerably longer in length, the 2017 Editions of FIDIC contracts contains more robust procedures, the use of which is binding on both the Employer, the Contractor and the Engineer/Employer’s Representative. Failure to adhere to these procedures can be catastrophic. It is vital, therefore, to gain a thorough understanding of the terms and conditions contained in FIDIC contracts, including its procedures. The aim of this very practical course is, therefore, to make the procurement, management and administration of FIDIC contracts easy through the use of templates, case studies and examples and by drawing upon the facilitator’s years of experience in dealing with these contracts and in advising blue-chip clients.

What to learn?

Although the 1999 editions of FIDIC forms of contract are still being used by many Employer’s, many international funding agencies have signed an agreement with FIDIC in terms of which they undertake, for the next five years, to use the 2017 editions in all instances where they will be providing funding for a project. As a result, it is expected that the new editions will have a quick uptake by the market. The new editions are regarded by most practitioners and legal experts as a vast improvement on the earlier, 1999 editions. The new editions certainly place much emphasis on procedures and many of these have changed. Some procedures, which are mandatory, have become more complex and require explanation and training. The role of the engineer has also changed substantially. Understanding how to procure, manage and to administer these contracts correctly is essential. Given its practical approach, attending this training will ensure that you get to grips with all aspects of the new editions quickly and easily.
