The Obligations of the Parties Under the FIDIC Forms of Contract

Did you know that the FIDIC Red book contains 74 separate obligations of the Employer, 211 of the Contractor and 85 of the Engineer? Well, to be honest, neither did I until I just counted them in the draft of my latest book!

The fact is that many of the obligations are ‘hidden’ deep within complicated and long-winded contractual language, so they are easy to miss. The problem with this for all parties, is that non-compliance with obligations can lead to serious and expensive consequences.My new book is almost complete and will contain a complete listing of the obligations of all the parties involved within each of the FIDIC ‘Rainbow Suite’ of contracts. As well as listing each obligation, the book shows the time frames within which the obligations should be carried out and the specific consequences contained in the contract for non-compliance. It is intended to be a quick and easy reference guide for use in conduction with the FIDIC contracts and hopefully, all users of the FIDIC contracts will find it useful and find a need for a copy on their bookshelves which in turn, will provide me with a welcome contribution to my pension plan!
