International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) was founded in 1913 and is the global representative body for national associations of consulting engineers, representing over one million engineering professionals and 40,000 firms in more than 100 countries worldwide.
FIDIC is charged with promoting and implementing the consulting engineering industry’s strategic goals on behalf of its Member Associations and to disseminate information and resources of interest to its members. In the furtherance of its goals, FIDIC publishes international standard forms of contracts for works and for clients, consultants, sub-consultants, joint ventures and representatives, together with related materials such as standard pre-qualification forms.
FIDIC publishes business practice documents such as policy statements, position papers, guidelines, training manuals and training resource kits in the areas of management systems (quality management, risk management, business integrity management, environment management, sustainability) and business processes (consultant selection, quality-based selection, tendering, procurement, insurance, liability, technology transfer, capacity building).
FIDIC also organises the annual FIDIC International Infrastructure Conference and an extensive programme of seminars, capacity building workshops and training courses.
