What are FIDIC Contracts?

FIDIC contracts are a cornerstone in architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) industries, representing a vital tool for professionals navigating contract management. Originating from the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC), these agreements have become the global benchmark for engineering and construction projects, with over fifty years of evolution and input from industry specialists.

FIDIC contracts offer a universally accepted structure that simplifies and harmonises contract management, particularly in international settings. Renowned for their equitable distribution of duties, risks, and rights, FIDIC contracts facilitate a trusted and streamlined approach to project execution across the AECO sector worldwide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who uses FIDIC Contracts?
FIDIC contracts are embraced by architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) organisations worldwide, irrespective of their size. Their comprehensive collection of standardised agreements makes these contracts readily adaptable and highly effective for various construction and engineering endeavours. They are widely acknowledged and relied upon across numerous international entities and legal jurisdictions.
How to manage FIDIC contracts?
FIDIC contracts serve as a universal contractual framework for the global AECO sector, offering a standardised language for project agreements. While these contracts lay a solid foundation for collaborative efforts, integrating cloud-based construction contract management software further enhances this process. Such technological solutions facilitate streamlined communication, bolster partnerships, and guarantee adherence to contractual obligations.
What types of FIDIC contracts are there?
FIDIC has consistently refined its contracts since their inception over half a century ago, ensuring they remain relevant to the evolving contracting needs and set a benchmark across various scenarios within the AECO sector. This suite of contracts, often called the 'Rainbow Suite,' is distinguished by the unique colour of each contract type's cover.

Key FIDIC Contracts Include:
  • Red Book: For construction projects where the employer has a significant role in design, ensuring clarity in role allocation and design responsibilities.
  • Yellow Book: Targets projects with a contractor-centric approach, increasing the contractor’s responsibilities to include both construction as well as design .
  • Silver Book: Designed for EPC/turnkey projects, the contractor is fully responsible for design and construction. It transfers more risk to the contractor so as to offer the employer greater cost certainty.
How do FIDIC Contracts Work?
FIDIC contracts are comprehensive agreements made up of several components: general conditions, special conditions, and particular conditions. General conditions set out the standard terms applicable to all contracts, special conditions tailor the contract to the specific project, and certain conditions delve into detailed aspects such as project scope, timeline, and costs. These contracts also feature mechanisms like the variation clause for project modifications and a claims procedure for addressing and resolving disputes.
Which FIDIC Contract Should I Use?
The choice of the FIDIC contract depends on the nature of the project and the distribution of responsibilities between the parties involved. Each FIDIC contract is designed with specific project dynamics in mind, ranging from design responsibilities to turnkey projects. Assessing the scope of obligations and which contract best aligns with those obligations will guide you in selecting the most appropriate FIDIC contract for your project.
