March Commercial Law. The Conditions of Agreement consist of the following text. A JV is a living organism where the Members remain in principle independent of each another. On the other hand they must have —from the legal point of view as well as in practice- a common aim to be achieved. This aim must be defined.
Any activities and contributions of the members are aimed at the achievement of the common aim. Typically the common aim of a JV is to provide services for a Client. Typically the services involve feasibility studies, design activities or contract management services for the purposes of a specific project.
The financial power and workman power of the Members are typically different. Also the interests of each Member are typically not always the same, also not the effects of any change to the scope of services as well as to the situation of each Member.
A marginal change may be a fundamental change at the same time depending on the Member being involved. The living organism, the JV, must be able to take decisions. The normal legal approach is such that the Members may only take unanimous decisions.
This may result in a deadlock, if the interests of the Members are different. Thus, practical reasons may require decisions by majority.
The JV cannot act with legal capacity or with a binding effect to all JV Members if there is nobody representing it. The normal legal approach is such that the Members shall act jointly on behalf of the JV.
The natural result is that unanimity is required. This is not a really practicable approach. A practical approach can be that the Members for example in a Policy Committee meeting take management decisions and convey upon a third person the authority to act with legal capacity on behalf of all JV Members or the JV.
The authorised person may have the unlimited power to act on behalf of all JV Members or the JV but it shall only do so if so authorized by a management decision. Whenever the third person acts with legal capacity it will be binding on all JV Members. But failure to have obtained prior approval or decision from the Members for example in a Policy Committee meeting will result in breach of contract and make the actor liable for damages.
The advantage of such a straightforward concept is that the JV is manageable and able to take action if necessary. What is required is simply a decision on the majorities which are to be met for any type of decision to be taken. Hence, the principle of unanimity prevails. Majority decisions are not permitted.
In the event of there being disagreement between members of the Policy Committee on matters not otherwise prescribed in this Agreement the Chairman shall be entitled to use a casting vote. It is rather questionable on whether such a JV Agreement reflects modern business requirements where quick decisions and a smooth and flexible performance of services is necessary. At least it will be quite difficult to enforce any decision taken in the Policy Committee because in matters of actions to be taken on behalf of the JV and its Members the unanimous consent of all JV Members and finally the signature of each Member Representative is required.
The fact that a Services Manager and a Leading Member will be appointed pretend actionability but in practice it is likely to be missing. Each JV Member will typically be jointly and severally responsible and liable for the performance of Services under the main Services Agreement with the Client and for any breach of that agreement.

Fidic Joint Venture Consortium) Agreement
Once you are registered you can immediately acces and order the services that best suit your needs. So now engineers, as well as other consultants, have a place to start when contemplating the key issues that need to be negotiated and formalised before entering into a joint venture. The alternative, an incorporated joint venture where the consultants set up a new company to manage the joint venture, requires additional legal formalities that are not covered by the FIDIC agreement. The Model Joint Venture agreement can be a helpful guide to some common issues in unincorporated joint ventures, especially for consultants with limited experience of this structure. Ideally it would be used in conjunction with legal advice on its suitability for each individual joint venture.
The FIDIC Joint Venture Agreement 1st Edition (1992) and 2nd Edition (2017)
This model Joint Venture Agreement will allow the parties to agree, on a project-specific basis, their obligations, services and rewards within the Joint Venture created among them by the effect of this Model Joint Venture Agreement. It is not intended to create a legal entity or to be used to create a more permanent non-project specific legal association. One purpose of a model agreement such as this is to raise the awareness of the Members of the Joint Venture as to what should be in the Agreement to mitigate their individual risks and avoid disputes between themselves. A second purpose is to provide the Members with a manageable agreement which establishes clear responsibilities and legal capacities to act. It is aimed to avoid disputes and deadlocks between the Members. In countries where it is inappropriate to use the description "Joint Venture" for the type of project-specific association described above, the wording in the Joint Venture Agreement can be changed accordingly.
