You may not have heard of FIDIC but, as this is a contract widely used by EDF Energy and some of their Tier 1 contractors, you may end up operating under one if you supply to the Hinkley Point C project.
What is FIDIC?
FIDIC (International Federation of Consulting Engineers) is the name of a group of contracts predominantly used in French Law, but many UK suppliers do not recognise or fully understand the requirements. There is a demand to comply with these contractual terms when supplying to a number of HPC contractors, so this workshop has been developed to build your knowledge in this area, and will help you understand how and where to get further guidance when you require it.
This valuable workshop will include interactive input from delegates and covers the following subjects:
- Structure of FIDIC contracts: tests and takeover, variations, payment, risk and responsibility
- Project management tips for FIDIC: systems and processes, collaboration and communication
- Terms and Conditions: how they are cascaded down the supply chain and the impact this could have on your business
- Further advice and training: where this can be sourced going forward
Join this workshop to further understand some of the most important provisions of FIDIC contracts, and how they operate in the context of HPC - valuble to any company hoping to supply the project.
Who should attend?
Managing Directors, Business Development Directors, Commercial Directors/Officers, Project Managers, or key members of bid teams who are forming their response to the opportunities presented through the HPC development. In addition, the content of this workshop will be of benefit to any personnel who will be managing the through-life aspects of a FIDIC contract.
Who delivers this workshop?
The Professional Services Group (PSG), made up of a collection of subject matter experts who either have experience supporting HPC contracts, or have been briefed on the project requirements. Members include representatives from a number of companies with legal, accounting, finance, project management, human resources and insurance expertise.
