Construction Law/Approval by Engr Representative (ER)


As per FIDIC 1987 (FIDIC IV), Sub-Clause 2.3a, if an Engineer's Representative (ER) fails to disapprove any work, the Engineer may disapprove such work. But what if the ER fails to approve the work, can still The Engineer take same action. I am asking this specifically for the reason that only the word 'disapprove' has been mentioned in the FIDIC referred Sub-Clause.

Dear Salman
the Engineer Rep will be able to isuuse all directions including appovals and disapporvals as he has the full authority of the Engineer but the Engineer holds the power to confirm, reverse or vary the contents of such directions.
best regards
