Course Overview

The 2nd 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. Whilst the course will focus on the provisions of the Red Book, delegates will be able to master all the contracts making up the FIDIC 2017 edition.
