ACES, as a permanent member of the International FIDIC, its main goal is to represent the interests of FIDIC in the Republic of Serbia.

In recent years, since its founding in 2009 until today, ACES recognized a problem in the proper use of recommendations and principles stipulated releases FIDIC 1999 contract models, especially in Clause 20, which refers to  CLAIMS, DISPUTES and ARBITRATION. Although the large number of contracts per FIDIC 1999 contract models implemented or is in the course of realization of the mentioned period, it was not notarized nor a request for the establishment of the Committee for the Resolution of Disputes (DAB – Dispute Adjudication Board), whose engagement is strongly recommended under the FIDIC 1999 contract models.
