FIDIC Conditions of Contract for. Plant And Design-Build Contract. First Edition, Page 3 of the Contractor submitted with the Letter of Tender. Fédération Internationale des Ingénieurs-Conseils (FIDIC) extends special . In the preparation of these Conditions of Contract for Plant and Design-Build. In the preparation of these Conditions of Contract for Plant and Design-Build, it was recognised that, while there are many sub-clauses which will be generally.

In drafting Special Provisions, if clauses in the General Conditions are to be replaced or supplemented and before incorporating any example wording, Employers are urged to seek legal and engineering advice in an effort to avoid ambiguity and to ensure completeness and consistency with the other provisions of the contract. This publication begins with a series of comprehensive flow charts which typically show, in visual form, the sequences of activities which characterise the FIDIC Plant and Design-Build form of contract.

The charts are illustrative, however, and must not be taken into consideration in the interpretation of the Conditions of Contract. This publication also includes a number of sample forms to help both Parties to develop a common understanding of what is required by third parties such as providers of securities and guarantees.

Drafters of contract documents are reminded that the General Conditions of all FIDIC contracts are protected by copyright and trademark and may not be changed without specific written consent, usually in the form of a licence to amend, from FIDIC. If drafters wish to amend the provisions found in the General Conditions, the place for doing this is in the Particular Conditions Part B — Special Provisions, as mentioned above, and not by making changes in the General Conditions as published.

Clauses 1 to Index of Sub-Clauses Introductory Guidance Notes Notes on the Preparation of Tender Documents Notes on the Preparation of Special Provisions Forms of Securities Letter of Tender Letter of Acceptance Contract Agreement He is otherwise deemed to have obtained all necessary information about risks, contingencies and other circumstances which could influence or affect the works. By signing the contract, he accepts total responsibility for having foreseen all difficulties and costs of successfully completing the works.

By contrast, the Contractor under clause 4. The reports have to contain detailed information 6 about the state of the works up to the end of the preceding calendar month; they must continue to be made until the Contractor has completed all the work which is known to be outstanding at the completion date stated in the Taking Over Certificate see Section 4.

As we saw in connection with the Silver Book, by clause 5.

FIDIC Yellow Book Update - What’s New?

As to errors or incompleteness in those Requirements, the corresponding provisions of the Yellow Book clause 5. Clause 5. They are fairly straightforward, and cover such matters as compliance with labour laws, minimum wages, reasonable facilities, health and safety protection and proper superintendence of the works by the Contractor to ensure their safe and satisfactory execution. By clause 7. These requirements will have to be interpreted by the Engineer or Employer in relation to the actual goods that are supplied and work that is executed by the Contractor.

Under clause 7. Under the clause, the Contractor must give notice to the Engineer or Employer whenever any work is ready and before it is covered up. The Engineer or Employer is then either to carry out the examination or testing without unreasonable delay, or promptly to give notice to the Contractor that he does not require to do so. If the Contractor fails to give the notice, he must, if and when required by the Engineer or Employer, uncover the work and then reinstate at his own cost.

Clause 7. The Contractor is to provide everything necessary to carry out the tests specified, unless otherwise stated in the contract.

He is to agree with the Engineer or Employer the time and place for the specified testing. The Engineer or Employer may vary the location or details of specified tests, or instruct the Contractor to carry out additional tests.

If he does not attend at the time and place agreed, the Contractor may proceed with the tests unless otherwise instructed by the Engineer or Employer, and the tests shall be deemed to have been made in his presence and to be accurate. If the Engineer or Employer requires plant, materials or workmanship to be retested, the tests must be repeated under the same terms and conditions. If the Employer suffers additional costs due to the retesting, the Contractor shall pay these costs to the Employer.

Also under clause 7. The Contractor must submit to the Engineer or Employer his programme within 28 days after the commencement date if Silver Book or 28 days after notice of the commencement date if Yellow.

As we saw in Section 1.

The programme must show: the order of execution of the works, including the anticipated timing of each major stage of the works; in the Yellow Book more details of this are required clause 8. The programme should be accompanied by a supporting report or method statement setting out how the Contractor intends to execute the works and the resources he intends to use. If the Engineer or Employer thinks the programme does not comply with the contract then he must give notice to the Contractor within 21 days of receiving it stating how the programme does not comply; otherwise, the Contractor is to proceed in accordance with the programme.

As we mentioned in Section 1. There is no similar obligation on the Engineer or Employer. Linked to the requirement to maintain valid programmes and to advise the Engineer or Employer of potential delaying events is the requirement to submit monthly progress reports Section 4.

As we noted in Section 1.

If any of the circumstances listed under clause 8. In the Silver Book, as we saw, only the first, second and last of these grounds apply variations, express mention in another clause of the contract or delays attributable to the Employer.

4.1.3 The priority of documents: Clause 1.5

Moreover, in the Silver Book general conditions, no additional time is permitted for a unforeseeable physical conditions whereas it is under clause 4. During such suspension, the Contractor must protect the affected part or parts against any deterioration, loss or damage. The Engineer or Employer can notify the cause of the suspension but does not have to do so. If the cause is notified and is the responsibility of the Contractor, he will not be entitled to any extension of time or additional payment due to the suspension.

The Engineer or Employer then proceeds to make a determination under clause 3. By clause 8. If the suspension lasts for more than 84 days, the Contractor can request permission to recommence. If permission is not given within 28 days, the Contractor can treat the suspension as an omission of the suspended works or give notice to terminate the Contract if the whole of the works is affected by the suspension. When the works have reached a stage when they are substantially complete and the Contractor believes they are ready to be tested, he notifies the Employer or the Engineer.

The tests on completion should be carried out within 14 days after the above date, on the day or days chosen by the Engineer or Employer. In considering the results, account must be taken of any adverse effect if the Employer was using the works. If the delay continues for more than 14 days, the Employer will be deemed to have Taken Over the works see Section 4.

If the Contractor fails to do so, the Employer may proceed with the tests at the risk and cost of the Contractor. In such a case, the tests will be deemed to have been carried out in the presence of the Contractor and the results will be deemed to be accurate. By clause 9. In this latter case, the Employer can terminate the contract as a whole, or in respect of any major part which cannot be put to the intended use, and recover the amounts paid to the Contractor for the rejected part, together with financing costs and the cost of dismantling.

The issuing of the TOC is an important milestone in the project. It signifies the date at which the works are complete, subject to rectification of defects and completing outstanding items of work, and from which the Employer can go into commercial use and operation of the plant or facility.

Contractually, the date indicated in the TOC is of great importance as it is the date from which: the Employer takes responsibility for care and maintenance of the works; one half of the retention money see Section 4. If the works have been divided into sections, by appropriate drafting of the contract documents, this presents no difficulty so long as the part the Employer wishes to use falls within a section for which a TOC has been issued.

However, the two Books differ over whether an Employer who has not got the benefit of sectional completion but who wishes to use and operate part of the works before the TOC is issued may do so. In the Silver Book clause However, the Employer is not to use any part except as a temporary measure which is either agreed by the parties or specified in the contract unless the Engineer has issued a TOC for that part.

In the event that the Employer does nevertheless use any part of the works before a TOC has been issued for that part, then: the relevant part is deemed to have been taken over from the date on which it is used; the Employer takes over responsibility for the care of that part; and if requested by the Contractor, the Employer issues a TOC for that part.

Clause The notification period is 12 months, unless stated otherwise, from the date of completion stated in the TOC for the works or section. If the notified defect or incomplete work is attributable to any other cause then the Contractor is entitled to have the work involved in rectifying or completing the relevant item treated as a variation under clause 13 see section 4.

In this latter event, the Employer may recover without prejudice to any rights he might have all sums paid to the Contractor in respect of the works or the affected part plus financing cost and dismantling and related costs. However, unless this is varied by the Particular Conditions, the DNP cannot be extended by more than two years. The cost of performing repeated tests is to be borne by the party liable for the cost of rectifying the defects. In both Books the Performance Certificate alone signifies acceptance of the works.

The contracts encourage timely issue of the Certificate. If the certificate is not issued accordingly then it will be deemed to have been issued on the date 28 days after it should have been issued. They tend to be provided for in projects where the complexity of the plant or facilty or the technology used make it important to provide for further testing after Taking Over.

These tests often involve an extended trial operation. Thereafter, the Engineer shall give a Notice to the Contractor stating the amount paid directly to the nominated Subcontractor by the Employer and, in the next IPC after this Notice, shall include this amount as a deduction under sub-paragraph b of Sub-Clause The Contractor shall: If the Contractor finds an error in any items of reference, the Contractor shall give a Notice to the Engineer describing it:.
