This two-day workshop presented by Kevin Spence, Admitted Adjudicator to the FIDIC Presidents List explains the use of DAB's in the FIDIC Rainbow Suite of contracts.

FIDIC Golden Principles introduced in 2019 prescribed that disputes in all forms of FIDIC contracts should be decided by a DAB or DAAB as the case may be.

The FIDIC philosophy of dispute avoidance being the primary function of any Dispute Board is discussed in great detail.

Throughout the course the procedures and application of the Dispute Adjudication requirements will be explained.
Delegates will be introduced to the standard tripartite DAB agreements entered into by the Employer, Contractor and the dispute board member and the obligations of each party are dealt with.
Payment of the dispute board member’s fees, including the obligation of the contractor to pay such fees in the first instance and then recovery of half of the fees through IPC’s is highlighted.

The second day will require delegates to be involved in a DAB role play ensuring they come away with a understanding of what is means to be DB Practitioner or involved in the DB Process.

In addition, delegates will be introduced to various nominating bodies to aid in the selection of dispute board members. These include, but are not limited to:
• FIDIC Presidents List of adjudicators
• SAICE Presidents list of adjudicators
• EPA (Namibia) national list of adjudicators
• Association of Arbitrators (Southern Africa)

This course will benefit those wishing to be considered for dispute board members as well as providing an understanding to Employers and Contractors who appoint DAB’s on projects.

Real life examples will be used to emphasise the most important points on the course and experience gained all over Africa will be shared with delegates.

The course presenter will emphasise the role of the DAB in countries such as Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Namibia, Mozambique, Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa.
