Dealing With Modified Contracts Under the New FIDIC Guidance
  • Donald Charrett - Member, FIDIC TASK GROUP 15

FIDIC contracts require the parties to add important details, such as the amount of delay damages, but also permit them to agree project-specific changes to the general conditions. This workshop will be an opportunity to consider some of the key issues arising when negotiating and agreeing such matters, identifying problem areas and pitfalls to look out for. This is a highly interactive workshop with practical examples used to facilitate discussion and exchange of experiences. Topics covered will include:

  • How do you modify a FIDIC contract? - Some dos and don’ts
  • Does the project location require a modification?
  • Choosing the governing law and other key terms
  • Dealing with changes to risk allocation and the dispute resolution clauses
