No part of a FIDIC publication can be reproduced, translated, adapted, stored in a retrieval system or communicated, in any form or by any means, mechanical, electronic, magnetic, photocopying, recording or otherwise, without prior permission in writing from FIDIC. The version in English is considered by FIDIC as the official and authentic text for the purposes of translation.
The word “FIDIC” used in conjunction with FIDIC product and services is trademarked in many countries.
Unauthorised use of the word “FIDIC” to designate a product or service is therefore illegal and in breach of trademark legislation.
FIDIC regularly updates and reissues the information and services it publishes so that users can profit from the state-of-the-art. By furnishing information or supplying publications, FIDIC does not grant any intellectual property rights The purchase or supply of FIDIC information, including forms for completion by a user, does not confer author’s rights under any circumstances. Consequently, this information cannot be published as translations or copied without FIDIC’s permission.
FIDIC discourages modification of the information and services it supplies, and only in exceptional circumstances will it authorise modification, reproduction or incorporation elsewhere.
Permission to quote from, incorporate, reproduce or copy all or part of a FIDIC publication, including documents, conditions of contract, web pages and similar supports for information should be addressed to the FIDIC Secretariat, which will decide upon appropriate terms.
A license to prepare a modified publication will be agreed to under certain conditions. Specifically the modified publication must be for internal purposes only, and not be published or distributed commercially.
