Preface: what is the FIDIC
FIDIC is an international body derived from the French term Fédération Internationale DES Ingénieurs-Conseils, which means International Federation of Consulting Engineers. Fidic’s main reputation is due to its work in explaining and defining construction industry contracts at the international level. The choice of project implementation method is one of the strategic decisions of the project that is made at the end of the feasibility study phase and at the same time or after deciding on the project financing method. In this section, the books of this institute are introduced.
Types of FIDIC contract templates
Contract templates have been drafted for a wide range of project types. The main templates are differentiated according to the color of the book cover. The choice of the template will depend on the type of project. In summary:
Cheap or fast projects – Green Book (short contract form)
Client plan (Conventional projects) – Red book
Client plan (financing by multilateral development banks) – Pink book of
contractor plan (Conventional projects) – Yellow book of
projects EPC / Turnkey – Silver Book
of Design, Construction, and Operation Projects – Golden Book
Select the type of contract in FIDIC
The standard FIDIC contract form is recognized in international executive projects for the contract between the employer and the contractor, in particular, the contract
terms for civil engineering work: Red Book (1987) Contract
terms for electrical and mechanical work, including equipment installation: Yellow Book (1987)
Terms and Conditions for Design – Construction and Turnkey (1995)
FIDIC realized while red and yellow books were being made that some projects were out of the scope of existing books. For this reason, FIDIC not only expanded the standard forms in time and scope but in 1999 released a set of four standard contract forms that are suitable for most construction and installation projects worldwide.
1999 set includes: 10
contract terms for construction and engineering work designed by the employer: Execution
contract 22 contract terms for construction and engineering works designed by the employer (coordinated version for multifaceted development banks) only for the project
Funded by the Bank: Contract for the Implementation of Multifaceted Development Banks 30 Contract Terms for Design – Construction of Electrical and Mechanical Works and Construction and Engineering Works Design by the Contractor: Design Contract – Construction of
48 Contract Conditions for Turnkey Project or EPC
50 Short Form of Contract: Short Form
60 Dredging Pact (Based on Short Contract Form): Dredging Pact
All the books in the 1999 collection are written: “The first version of 1999 (the trial version was published in 1998, and although it is valid for treaties, in some cases it has undergone fundamental changes).
