Laytime Definitions for Charter Parties 2013

Overview

The Laytime Definitions for Charter Parties have been developed to provide practitioners with a set of meanings of commonly used words and phrases. The objective is to help reduce disputes about party intentions in a market where fixtures are often concluded on the basis of a recap message and listed amendments, without the exchange or return of draft contracts. These provisions have been developed for incorporation into charter parties. The latest edition of these definitions is the Laytime Definitions for Charter Parties 2013.
