UK P&I Club will host a series of live training webinars aimed at both members and the wider maritime industry, with the first webinar, addressing the practical and legal issues of bunker fuel quality, taking place on Thursday 2 April at 9am BST (4pm Singapore).
The UK Club continues to see a number of bunker quality issues arising from delivery of alleged off-specification or contaminated bunkers. In many of these cases fuel sampling procedures on board at the time of delivery have been found inadequate and in many cases unreliable.
Hard copies of the book will only be mailed out to Members who have ordered a copy. If you would like to order a printed version of either the 2020 Rules or the 2020 Correspondents books you can do sohere.
At their meeting on 3rd February 2020, the Directors reviewed the basis on which special war risks P&I cover could be made available to Members in accordance with the proviso to Rule 5E, and determined that this cover should be made available to Members for the 2020 policy year in accordance with the terms of the attached Directors’ Resolution of 3rd February 2020.
The last year has seen the Group continuing to build on the initiatives launched over the last couple of years under the chairpersonship of Hugo Wynn-Williams to improve and optimise the way in which shipowners benefit from the strengths and opportunities inherent in the mutual club and Group system.
In 2010 the International Group launched the P&I Qualification (P&IQ) programme as a dedicated professional qualification providing high quality, sector-specific training in all aspects of P&I insurance to Club employees. The course allows candidates to gain valuable knowledge of the shipping industry, the origins and operation of P&I Clubs and the different types of liabilities insured. Two years after making the course available to Club correspondents, in October 2017, registration is now being opened to all other interested parties.
