ICC Dispute Resolution Bulletin 2015 Issue 1, 2014 Statistics & Dispute Adjudication Boards under FIDIC Contracts

 

This inaugural issue of the ICC Dispute Resolution Bulletin looks at disputes that have recently arisen in relation to multi-tiered dispute resolution provisions in FIDIC and similar contracts and the decisions made by ICC arbitral tribunals in these
cases. Construction and engineering disputes, as shown in the 2014 statistics also in this issue, represent almost a quarter of all cases referred the International Court of Arbitration, so there is much to share. While touching on important questions relating to dispute boards, the admissibility of claims and FIDIC dispute resolution conditions, the awards also offer lessons in matters of contract law and dispute resolution procedure that go beyond the confines of construction contracts.
