Hi, It is a usual practice of holding a percentage of amount (Not the retention) claimed by the Contractor in Progress Payments based on Non Conformance not rectified & closed.
I want to clarify;
1. FIDIC or any other standards provide specific guidelines regarding this?
2. Must relevant clauses be included in the Contract Documents describing percentage of amount holding per non-closed NCR and process to be followed by Client and the Contractor to release the amount held as per NCRs?
