TIME-BAR CLAUSES, SPECIAL SITUATIONS AND PITFALLS
As mentioned earlier, the use of dispute boards in a worldwide sense was immensely helped and encouraged by FIDIC. This can be seen, for example, with the inclusion of dispute boards, specifically dispute adjudication boards in their 1999 suite of contracts, i.e. the Red Book, Yellow Book, etc. These specific provisions are contained in the standard conditions of contract Sub-Clauses:
1 Sub-Clauses 20.2 to 20.8 – the Dispute Adjudication Board; 2 Appendix – General Conditions of Dispute AdjudicationAgreement; 3 Annex 1 – Procedural Rules; and 4 Dispute Adjudication Agreement (three-person DAB or one-person DAB).
