Terms of Reference (TOR)

The Business Practice Committee (BPC) seeks input from Member Associations on business issues of key interest to their member firms. They then identify those issues in which FIDIC can contribute original work or can coordinate and present existing global knowledge on specific issues.

The BPC develops best practice guidelines and publications, and recommends to the FIDIC Board delivery mechanisms for the products. They recommend the creation of task groups to develop products designed to effectively address issues. The BPC provides relevant information to FIDIC Member Associations and monitors developments in key areas such as Risk Identification and Management, Insurance Trends, Practice Management, and Quality Based Selection (QBS).

Please note the Terms of Reference for the task groups are currently in the process of being reviewed and will be updated soon.
