The UK Club has set itself the target of completing the cover documentation for every renewing, or newly joined ship by the close of business on the 20th February.
We are well on the way to achieving that with 98 per cent of documentation completed at the renewal deadline of midday 20th February. The renewed Certificates of Entry, debit notes, Blue Cards and other documentation can all be downloaded almost immediately after renewal is agreed and processed via the Members’ Area of our website, or our underwriting app – iPandi.
If you have not been able to obtain your documentation by Friday 21st February, please call your usual underwriting contact urgently to resolve the matter.
Our recent experience has been that increasingly rigorous port inspections and regulation has detained those Members' ships unable to show current or correct insurance documentation. Even where cover has renewed, the lack of documentation for the forthcoming policy year will risk contravening local authority requirements and prevent the ship's departure until proper documentation i.e. Certificates of Entry, Blue Cards etc are presented.
The iPandi app is a particularly convenient way to receive documentation, in PDF form, that Members and their brokers can e-mail as needed.
Members joining or renewing their entries for 2014 receive PDF copies of their documentation by email, either directly or through their brokers. These electronic documents are true original documents. These PDFs can be outputted to a colour printer and presented as original documents.
