23 May 2016: FIDIC and Egyptian Law: What You Must Know?

The second May Seminar focused on “FIDIC and Egyptian Law: What You Must Know?” and was delivered by Mr. Scott Lambert, Regional Head – Construction & Infrastructure- Al Tamimi & Co. The seminar examined how the Egyptian Law interacts with the written terms of the FIDIC’s general conditions (focusing on the 1999 Red Book) and explained that what is written may not legally mean what it says. Special focus was given to time bars, limited damages, limitation of liability, variations, suspension and termination. Also, the speaker considered some of the common amendments to the clauses and some practical contract administration tips. In conclusion, Mr. Lambert communicated an important message that balancing common law contracts under civil law can be tricky and that users should know their projects to correctly decide which model FIDIC standard contract to use.

Attendees represented the Egyptian construction community and got engaged in lively discussions.
