These obligations include, by default, an express fitness for purpose warranty.
Contractors were often surprised by how exposed they were and that, according to FIDIC , it was inappropriate for a consultant to give the same kind of standard of care warranty as a contractor undertaking design work. This attachment to the old English common law position seems somewhat antiquated in the context of modern procurement practice.
The casual inclusion of what common law lawyers would recognise as a net contribution clause. A one-way indemnity in favour of the consultant for third party claims. Interestingly it is evident from the preamble that the appropriate standard of care was a major source of negative feedback on the old version and therefore an issue the working group for the new version had to research thoroughly.

However, clause 1. It seems harsh for the consultant to have such a draconian self-help remedy before that question is resolved. In theory, it is a nice idea to introduce a requirement for suitability and functionality in design, but it is rather unclear what it is supposed to mean in practice. Good luck to whoever argues the point either way. Gone is the restricted limitation of all liability for damages to breaches of the diluted standard of care.

It is replaced by reciprocal provisions saying that one party is liable to the other for any breach of any provision of the agreement. These seem completely unnecessary, other than, perhaps, to underscore the inappropriateness of the former position.
The net contribution language still exists, but clients can take comfort from the fact that, in contrast to the previous position, they now have a fighting chance of holding a poorly performing consultant liable for its defaults.Any changes provided by the Charles Molineaux. The clauses of general application have been grouped together in this document and are referred to as General Conditions.
If a satisfactory response is not received within 21 days the Client may by a further notice terminate the Agreement provided that such further notice is given within 35 days of the Client's former notice. In addition, they were surprised at the sheer volume of amendments required to protect their legitimate interests.
The General Conditions are linked with the Particular Conditions by the corresponding numbering of the clauses, so that General Conditions and Particular Conditions together comprise the conditions governing the rights and obligations of the parties.
