OIL POLLUTION IN THE UNITED STATES
TANKER VOYAGE ADDITIONAL PREMIUM SYSTEM - 2001 POLICY YEAR
The Association's reinsurance arrangements through the International Group Pool remain unchanged for the 2001 policy year. As a result, this Association's additional premium system for tankers carrying persistent oil to or from the United States will continue for the 2001 policy year on the same terms as applied for the 2000 policy year.
As before, the full text of the U.S. Oil Pollution clause 20/2/01 will be set out in an Appendix to the Rules and will be incorporated, by reference, in the certificates of entry. A lower rate per entered ton will continue to apply to tankers equipped with segregated ballast tanks (SBT) in accordance with the requirements of Regulation 13 of Annex 1 to MARPOL 73/78.
