As you will already know the FIDIC 1999 Suite of Contracts (Red Book, Yellow Book and Silver Book) is currently being updated. FIDIC concentrated on updating the Yellow Book 1999 first, and has continued this work by adopting harmonised changes for the updates of the Red Book and Silver Book. By reference to the conference pre-publication draft of the FIDIC Yellow Book 2017 Edition members of the FIDIC Contracts Committee will unveil the main changes to Yellow Book 1999 and explain why these changes were decided by FIDIC to be an improvement to its design-build form of contract. This is no doubt a highly anticipated event for the global construction industry and we invite you to be there to witness it.
