Timely documentation keeps you trading
Port authorities may require evidence of insurance prior to the expiry of current documents. Ships without 2016 policy year documentation prior to 20th February may face trading delays. Some jurisdictions may ask to see a 2016/17 Certificate of Entry, which can only be issued by the Club once renewal has been agreed. Members and brokers may wish to check with local port agents about documentary requirements.
The Club can now issue 2016 Certificates of Entry for agreed renewals, as well as, Blue Cards, renewal confirmations and COFR documentation.
Many Members and brokers aim to complete renewals well in advance of 20th February so that their full P&I documentation, including a valid Certificate of Entry, can be produced early enough to avoid potential vessel delays. The Club can produce Members’ electronic cover documentation (PDF) quickly, but in some situations ships or flag states may require physical copies of documents which may take longer.
