COVID-19 will not be the last pandemic we will experience in our lives. This shows the importance of the BIMCO Infectious or Contagious Disease Clause for Time Charter Parties and its incorporation into your time charter party.

The EU Research and Innovation Magazine Horizon had an article about this in December 2021.

The recently revised BIMCO clause covers pandemics and epidemics and will also be workable for the next pandemic. It is not a COVID-19 clause and has a general and broad application.

On Wednesday 17 August 2022 at 14:00 CET (12:00 UTC) we will have a talk about the new clause and explain:

1. The importance of incorporating the clause
2. How the clause is protecting owners and charterers in a balanced, practical and commercial way
3. Why the clause is keeping trade alive

The session will be followed by a Q&A session.
