IADC Legal Committee

In 1999, FIDIC published new standard forms of contract but this new work did not meet the specific needs of dredging and reclamation work. The IADC contacted FIDIC about the possibility of a separate FIDIC dredging contract. A Task Group was formed and produced the FIDIC Form of Contract for Dredging and Reclamation Works. Since then, the Legal Committee has periodically helped to update the FIDIC document for dredging.
