Phone-A-Friend with Stephen Mackin

The UK P&I Club recently held a webinar on the subject of Chemical Tanker Claims. The recording of the Webinar is now available on the Club’s website.

As a follow up, the LP team has conducted further recording with the panellists where they covered the various questions that could not be covered due to the lack of time. These questions not only include the questions raised by the audience during registrations, but also the concerns and questions raised by the audience during the webinar itself.

In the following video, the host of the Webinar, Capt Anuj Velankar, talks with the lawyer Stephen Mackin of Clyde & Co on the various legal issues related with Chemical tanker claims and about liquid cargoes in general. Among the various issues discussed are the obligations of Owners and Charterers in preparing the cargo tanks for loading, proper descriptions on the Bills of lading, ship shore differences, Cargo allowances in the palm oil trade, effect of LOI’s given by the counter party and the proper way of describing the cargo on the Bills of lading.

The webinars are an effort of the UKP P&I Club to promote safety and best practices and are currently being held on a monthly basis. If you would like to be included in the mailing list, reach out to your Club contact or the Loss prevention team at  lossprevention.ukclub@thomasmiller.com .
