A Review about FIDIC Contracts in Saudi Arabia


Objectives: This research aims to clarify the role of FIDIC contracts used by the countries, especially in Saudi Arabia, in representing the global consulting engineering industry, to be global, effective and more quality and clarifying dispute resolution methods resulting from the implementation of FIDIC contracts. Methods: FIDIC contracts are contracts of great importance and value; most of these contracts are large contracts or technology transfer agreements and they are often parties to countries or public bodies. In the Saudi Arabian kingdom, an FIDIC contract is widely used for construction projects. However, the project performance still faces several problems, such as delays and additional costs, which are the consequences of disputes. Findings: FIDIC contracts are the most important and most commonly used model contracts in the construction industry around the world. They are also applicable to local and international standards. The FIDIC contract also shows all the terms related to the structural work and defines them in a simple way to make the work system clear to all without ambiguity or ambiguity. FIDIC contracts give multiple rights to the contractor and the engineer who supervises the execution of the works has wide powers, supervisory powers and a quasicontrol role when issuing a decision or a judgment during the implementation of the project or when a dispute occurs.
