Webinar on new General Agency Agreement

Webinar on new General Agency Agreement


Join us on Thursday 5 April at 9.00 CET (10.00 CEST) to hear about the newly published BIMCO/FONASBA General Agency 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 explain why agents and their principals would benefit from using it:

  • John Foord - FONASBA President
  • Han van Blanken - BIMCO Documentary Committee member
  • Luis Bernat – Danish Shipbrokers Association

Sign up to watch this free webinar.

Viewers will be able to submit questions to the panel in advance. Send your questions to contracts@bimco.org.

The General Agency Agreement can be found on the BIMCO website
