FIDIC 1999 Notices: A Guide to the Requirements, Content and Composition of Notices Under the Red, Yellow and Silver Books

About this book

Failure to provide notices in the correct format is one of the biggest mistakes made by the parties and those appointed to administer a FIDIC contract.

Major industry reports on construction industry disputes have cited contract management and failure to serve required notices, or failure to comply with contractual obligations as major causes of disputes. In the author’s own experience when dealing with claims, contractual matters and disputes, one of the major failings contractors make is that they do not comply with contract provisions on notices. Where they do comply, the notices often do not contain the necessary information needed to adequately record events.

This book examines each clause of the FIDIC Red, Yellow and Silver forms of contract that require notices to be given by the Contractor, the Employer and the Engineer. It contains explanations of why, and under what circumstances, each notice is required and provides real-world examples of typical notices for each clause.

Foreword by leading barrister, Dr. Cyril Chern, BArch, JurisD, RIBA, AIA, FCIArb, FDBF.

‘This is a “must-have” and “go-to” book for any Contractor, solicitor, barrister, Engineer and Employer who uses FIDIC contracts, and its information will save time and money for all those who use it. I highly recommend this book.’
