988 - 08/14 - Ebola Virus - Contractual Issues
As a follow up to Bulletin 985 on the practical advice concerning the current outbreak of the Ebola Virus in West Africa, the Club has produced a document which lays out contractual issues that may be faced by Members, and the Club’s advice when dealing with them.
Due to the rapidly developing situation, advice may change over time and each case will vary depending on the specific facts and nature of the applicable charter parties.
A section on the UK P&I Club Loss Prevention website has been created to combine all related Ebola advice into a single place and can be found here.
