FIDIC is the International Federation of Consulting Engineers comprised of National Associations whose members comply with FIDIC’s Code of Ethics .

FIDIC was founded in 1913 by three national associations of independent consulting engineers within Europe. The objectives of forming the federation were to promote in common the professional interests of the member associations and to disseminate information of interest to members of its component national associations. Today FIDIC membership numbers 56 countries from all parts of the globe, representing most of the independent consulting engineers in the world.

FIDIC arranges seminars, conferences and other events in the furtherance of its goals: maintenance of high ethical and professional standards; exchange of views and information; discussion of problems of mutual concern among member associations and representatives of the international financial institutions; and development of the engineering profession in developing countries.

FIDIC publications include proceeding of the various conferences and seminars, information for consulting engineers, project owners and international development agencies, standard pre-qualification forms contract documents and client/consultant agreements. They are available from the FIDIC secretariat in Switzerland.

The terms of the Conditions of Subcontract for Works of Civil Engineering Construction have been prepared by the Fédération Internationale des Ingénieurs-Conseils (FIDIC) and are recommended for use in conjunction with the Conditions of Contract for Works of Civil Engineering Construction (Fourth Edition 1987, Reprinted 1992 with Further Amendments). The Conditions, subject to minor modifications, are equally suitable when the Subcontractor has been nominated by the Employer.

The version in English of the Conditions is considered by FIDIC as the official and authentic text for the purpose of translation. In the preparation of the Conditions of Subcontract it was recognised that while there are numerous Clauses which will be generally applicable there are some Clauses which must necessarily vary to take account of the circumstances and locality of the Subcontract Works. The Clauses of general application have been grouped together in Part I of this document and are referred to as Part I – General Conditions. They have been printed in a form which will facilitate their inclusion as printed in the subcontract documents normally prepared.

The General Conditions are linked with the Conditions of Particular Application, referred to as Part II of the Subcontract, by the corresponding numbering of the Clauses, so that Parts I and II together comprise the Conditions of Subcontract governing the rights and obligations of the parties.

The Conditions of Particular Application must be specially drafted to suit each individual Subcontract. The guidance in Part II of this document is intended to aid in this task by giving options for various clauses where appropriate.
