18 years on and the boiling debate is whether the Second Edition of the Rainbow Suite of the FIDIC contracts meets the objectives of increased clarity, transparency and certainty. Following the launch of the 2017 FIDIC Suite of Contracts in London, 5 and 6 December 2017, learn about managing the increased administrative burden, managing the allocation of risk, compliance with the new claims process and the role of the standing Dispute Avoidance/Adjudication Board.
