Effective Claims Management Under FIDIC Contracts

Alusani Skills & Training Network® offers a CPD-accredited training course on Effective Claims Management under FIDIC Contracts. FIDIC Claims often arise on building and engineering projects and appear to be an inherent feature of the industry. Unfortunately claims under FIDIC contracts have acquired a very negative connotation and the manner in which claims are brought and assessed often lead to disputes.

Most building and engineering contracts set out the basis for claims and indicate which events will lead to claims. These contracts also contain and prescribe detailed procedures that have to be followed by the parties should they wish to give notice of and submit claims. FIDIC is no exception!

This 1-day CPD-accredited FIDIC Claims training course focuses in detail on the grounds to claim and the procedures to notify claims that are applicable in the case of FIDIC contract. We also cover in detail the issue of how to properly present and assess FIDIC claims.
