A Review of the FIDIC Blue Book (Second Edition)

Authors: Marnix Vandenberghe (Van Oord), Tim Maddock (van Oord)

This article analyses the second edition of the FIDIC Form of Contract for Dredging and Reclamation Works, commonly referred to as the FIDIC Blue Book. The new edition updates the first edition to better reflect actual practice and to increase usage of the book. To achieve this, the second edition’s “General Conditions of Contract” are more specific to the needs of the marine construction industry and the book provides more specialised guidance notes to help employers. The book is now also more aligned with the other FIDIC Contracts to achieve an appropriate balance of risk.
