25+ FIDIC Experts Sharing Their Knowledge with Latin American Contract Users in Lima
ARE YOU READY FOR THE NEW FIDIC SUITE?
NEW FIDIC SUITE (YELLOW, RED & SILVER BOOKS), 2017 EDITION
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. Members of the FIDIC Contracts Committee will discuss the main changes to the 1999 Raibow Suite and explain why these changes were deemed by FIDIC to be an improvement to its current forms of contract. This is no doubt a defining moment for the global construction industry involved with FIDIC and we invite you to join us to discover more about this exciting relaunch of FIDIC’s iconic suite of contracts.
Just some of the unmissable sessions at this essential FIDIC event:
FIDIC Rainbow Suite - 2017 Edition Update
Get the inside scoop on all that is new in the FIDIC Rainbow Suite including details of the new Plant and Design-Build Contract, now fully updated by the FIDIC Contracts Committee, alongside revised editions of the Red and Silver Books. This will be the first opportunity for users to see members of the FIDIC Contracts Committee unveil the main changes to the Yellow Book 1999 edition and explain why these changes were decided by FIDIC to be an improvement to its design-build form of contract.
Case Studies of FIDIC Application Delivered by Latin America Experts
Experienced FIDIC Contract Users from the region will once again share lessons learnt in using FIDIC forms of contract to underpin some of the most challenging infrastructure projects in Latin America. We have assembled a number of new case studies from different industries and countries to help bring the benefits to life and to help you understand the practical challenges of FIDIC application in practice. Projects under review to be announced soon. Watch this space for more information!
FIDIC's Official Guidance on Modifying FIDIC Conditions
This session will offer an exclusive insight into new FIDIC philosophy and official guidance on safely modifying FIDIC Conditions of Contract by maintaining the integrity of some of the "core" or Golden FIDIC Clauses in order to minimise disputes. The presenter will be drawn from the newly formed Task Group 15 on Golden Clauses whose remit it is to determine the limits of acceptable modification of clauses. Case studies on critical Do's and Dont's will be provided in the content of this session.
Comparison Between FIDIC and Other Contracts Used in LatAm
Delegates will get an in-depth understanding of the main clauses of some of the most important FIDIC forms in the FIDIC suite of Contracts, and how these compare with major clauses in the most common contracts presently used in Latin America. Our panel of experts will also offer practical advice on how to adopt FIDIC Contracts with a view to optimizing contract administration. The session will also feature a step by step guide on adopting FIDIC Contracts for those new to FIDIC.
Managing Claims Under FIDIC Forms of Contract
A comprehensive session discussing how to minimise claims and, if the claims are disagreed, how to avoid contested claims from becoming disputes. Speakers will focus on claims and procurement, the different approaches to claim quantification in Civil and Common Law, the requirements for notices of claim, and much more besides. This will be of essential attendance for all those involved in projects underpinned by FIDIC forms of contract.
DABs Role Under FIDIC Conditions - Current Practices & The New Rules
Along with the ongoing review and update of the FIDIC Yellow Book, Red Book and Silver Book, FIDIC are reviewing and updating their Dispute Adjudication Rules with a view to reflect current best practice for Dispute Boards. The main changes and improvements introduced will be explained and discussed during this session. These will include, among others, the reformulation of the current 20 clauses of the FIDIC contracts, with a new Clause 21 dedicated to dispute avoidance and resolution.
