The Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) has launched an anonymous Impact Survey to better understand the evolving situation relating to the operating environment in Nigerian ports and terminals and assess the impact of MACN’s efforts in Nigeria.
The Impact Survey focuses, amongst other issues, on port clearance procedures and corruption such as demands for facilitation payments.
BIMCO supports MACN’s endeavours to facilitate shipping operations and fight corruption. Members are therefore encouraged to forward the questionnaire to relevant ships and ask that they respond to it before 15 September 2020, as this input will be very valuable to MACN’s work.
The Impact Survey can be found here.
According to information received from MACN, all data will be collected anonymously and handled confidentially by MACN. The results of the survey will be aggregated and shared with stakeholders and will be used to develop the next steps which MACN should take to further improve the operating environment in Nigeria.

Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) publish regular Bunker Alerts based entirely on fuel samples and have kindly permitted BIMCO’s Members to access this information.
The Bunker Alerts are not intended to be an evaluation of overall bunker quality in the port or area concerned, but usually highlight a specific parameter within the fuel which has raised a quality issue.
