16 July 2021

AIS manipulation is one tool used by parties to evade sanctions. This clause addresses this issue and is part of the BIMCO suite of sanctions clauses. It is intended to be part of a company’s sanctions compliance due diligence programme. Although the continuous operation of a ship’s Automatic Identification System (AIS) is mandatory under SOLAS, there are circumstances where it may be legitimately be switched off. The purpose of the clause is to ensure that when this is done legitimately, it does not give rise to termination rights and ensures a balance of the rights and responsibilities between owners and charterers in preventing AIS manipulation to evade sanctions.
