Sign up for the webinar on new Agency Appointment Agreement

Overview

Join us on Monday 20 February at 14:00 CET and 08:00 (US East Coast) to hear about the newly published BIMCO/FONASBA Agency Appointment Agreement.

Agency appointments are often agreed over the phone or by email. But with ship operations becoming ever more complex, there is a growing need for a standard agreement that clearly sets out the services to be performed by the agents and the liabilities and responsibilities of both parties.

A panel will discuss the new agreement and highlight its key benefits for agents and their principals:

  • John Foord - FONASBA President
  • Han van Blanken - BIMCO Documentary Committee member
  • Andrew Jamieson – ITIC

FONASBA General Manager, Jonathan Williams, will also give an overview of the FONASBA Quality Standard Certification scheme for ship agents.

Viewers will be able to ask the panel questions (questions can also be submitted in advance to contracts@bimco.org).

Sign up to watch this free webinar.

The Agency Appointment Agreement can be found on the BIMCO website.
