    FIDIC contracts are the most widely used contracts for international construction around the world and are used in many different jurisdictions, both common law and civil law. For any construction project, the General Conditions of Contract published by FIDIC need to be supplemented by Particular Conditions that specify the specific requirements of that project.

    The International Application of FIDIC Contracts: A Practical Guide provides readers with detailed guidance and resources for the preparation of the Particular Conditions that will comply with the requirements of the applicable laws that apply to the site where the work is carried out, and for the governing law of the contract, for a number of the jurisdictions in which FIDIC contracts are used.

    This book is essential reading for construction professionals, lawyers and students of construction law.

    "The International Application of FIDIC Contracts: A Practical Guide edited by Dr Donald Charrett is a timely and extremely useful guide. It is the first book, which identifies, on a jurisdiction by jurisdiction basis, the issues to be addressed when amending the new rainbow suite of FIDIC contracts. In time, it will be an invaluable "go to" guide for the construction industry." - Nick Longley, Partner at HFW

    "Whilst aimed at contract administrators and/or lawyers who are more familiar with the requirements of and peculiarities of FIDIC, and the application of FIDIC in a range of jurisdictions, any lawyer involved in the drafting and negotiation of a FIDIC contract should read and digest this book." - Bill Barton, Director of Barton Legal

    "The International Application of FIDIC Contracts, edited by Dr Donald Charrett, is an invaluable resource when it comes to understanding the FIDIC suite and assisting the industry in maximising the benefit from the suite, whether or not any particular project adopts one of the FIDIC contracts. [...] Dr Charrett's book will be useful to those who practice on the international stage and, in providing insights to a smorgasbord of thinking, experience and practice, to those whose practice is confined to one or two geographies." - Phillip Greenham, Building and Construction Law Journal, 2021
