THE FIDIC FORMS OF CONTRACT 2019 v1
SAIEE-XXXX-V (TBA) : 2 CPD CREDITS
The popularity and use of the FIDIC forms of contract, with particularly emphasis on FIDIC’s major contract forms known as the “Rainbow Suite”, has increased in South Africa and Africa at large. It has, therefore, become imperative that everyone involved in the South African construction and engineering industry is familiar with the FIDIC suite of contracts, as at some point or another, they will encounter these forms. In fact, it will be advantageous to be familiar with them from both an academic and a business point of view.
FIDIC has simplified and created compact standard forms of contract. It has accomplished the rather elusive balance of apportioning rights, obligations and allocation of risk fairly between the Parties (Employer, Contractors, and Subcontractors (when applicable)) and embodies the construction law principle that the party who is best able to manage the risk assumes the risk.
Their flexibility and suitability across the board has made them the preferred construction contracts of choice for many major projects.
