Standard forms of contracts have been in use in the Malaysian construction industry as a means to expedite contractual and legal duties where clients often seek a quick approach to arrive at an agreement with their contractors. Various forms have been drafted by various professional bodies and organisations, both locally and internationally, to closely meet the demands of the market where quality is one its objectives. Experts within this field are sought together with the comparison of clauses made to provide a robust study. This dissertation investigates the adequacy of the provision of these forms and suggests suitable changes to the current standard forms within this study. Evidently, the standard of quality in the Malaysian construction industry remains at a low and becomes an evergreen issue. Whether these forms sufficiently cater for quality, remains disputable. However it is an undeniable fact that quality provisions can be further enhanced. Since, the “one-size fits all” postulate may not hold any grounds especially when it comes to ensuring quality on site, the question of validity and effectiveness of standard forms becomes a pertinent one.
