FIDIC President's List of Approved Dispute Adjudicators

FIDIC has established a high standard for its President’s List of Approved Dispute Adjudicators. Successful candidates who are invited to attend the President’s List Adjudicator Assessment will need to be fluent in English and be familiar with FIDIC's current Conditions of Contract.


Invitees to the Adjudicator Assessment will be subjected to rigorous testing and will be expected to demonstrate not only their close understanding of FIDIC Contracts but also their dispute resolution skills, and knowledge of DAB procedures. Adjudicators listed on the President’s List are required to be senior members of a relevant professional institution with extensive construction industry experience.

They are also required to comply with the specified criteria for inclusion on the list throughout the period of listing. Candidates from a broad range of backgrounds, countries and language skills are encouraged to apply, but the testing will be undertaken in English, the default language for FIDIC contracts.


Applicants must be sponsored by their Member Associations or by FIDIC Affiliates.

Sponsors are required to confirm that the applicant satisfies the above criteria. In addition, applicants must be proposed and seconded by two individuals who have close and personal knowledge of the applicant's skills and abilities in the field of dispute resolution and who, ideally, are themselves members of the FIDIC President’s List.

Proposers and seconders must declare that the applicant satisfies the stated qualification criteria for membership of the President’s List and shall state that, to the best of his or her knowledge and belief, all the details on the applicant's application are correct.

Applicants must also certify that they will continue to develop their abilities and knowledge by further study and periodic training. Persons listed will be required to demonstrate compliance with these criteria on an ongoing basis and, in the event that the adjudicator cannot demonstrate such compliance, FIDIC reserves the right to de-list the adjudicator.
