Understanding Claims Under The FIDIC Contracts

Failure to identify and manage claims correctly costs valuable time and money


If you’ve been working in the construction industry for a while, then you’ll know exactly what we mean. With claims on the rise today, it is vital that companies have a person who possesses the knowledge and skill to handle claims effectively. The cost of getting it wrong can have drastic consequences for a project’s timeline and profitability.

The FIDIC suite of contracts is one of the most renowned forms of contract used worldwide. Having worked on projects using these contracts for years, we know that they are not always easy to navigate. Perhaps you’ve been on the employer or contractor side and have struggled to understand how to manage claims under the FIDIC contracts; unsure of the circumstances that provide a basis for a claim, not sure what you can claim for and what the proper procedures and requirements are for the Engineer’s responses and determinations.

Our Understanding Claims Under the FIDIC Contracts training courses have been created to give you a thorough understanding of claims under the FIDIC contracts. We’ll go through every clause in detail to ensure you know exactly under what circumstances a claim may arise and what obligations must be complied with when making a claim. Whilst each of our courses offers different learning outcomes, regardless of the course you take, by the end you’ll be able to confidently identify, prepare and respond to all manner of claims under the FIDIC contracts and resolve matters with speed and efficiency. You will also benefit from learning how to handle claims on any FIDIC-based projects from the contractor, employer and engineer’s perspective.
