OIL POLLUTION IN THE UNITED STATES TANKER VOYAGE ADDITIONAL PREMIUM SYSTEM - 2010 POLICY YEAR
The additional premium system for tankers carrying persistent oil to or from the United States will continue for the 2010 policy year.
The new 2010 rates (set out below), represent a decrease of 16 per cent on the 2009 rates. This has been achieved through a combination of a ten per cent reduction on the 2009 rates and the removal of the allocation for additional premium to the upper layer of the Pool.
The full text of the US Oil Pollution Clause 20/2/2010 will be set out in an Addendum to the Rules and will be incorporated, by reference, in the Certificates of Entry. As before, a lower rate per ton will apply to tankers equipped with segregated ballast tanks (SBT) in accordance with the requirements of Regulation 13 of Annex 1 to MARPOL 73/78.
