Shipowners encouraged to take part in ship generated waste survey

03 August 2020

The EU is carrying out an online survey which is relevant to all shipowners irrespective if they operate ships on EU-flag or not. The outcome of the survey will be used to establish criteria for determining that a ship produces reduced quantities of waste and manages its waste in a sustainable and environmentally sound manner. The outcome could result in reduced fees for delivering waste to a port reception facility, and BIMCO encourages all shipowners to take part in the survey.

Sanctions Clause for Time Charter Parties 2020

03 March 2022

The sanctions landscape has grown increasingly complex since BIMCO published its Sanctions Clause for Time Charter Parties in 2010. International sanctions regimes are constantly changing with new restrictions being added and new persons and entities being listed. A violation of sanctions restrictions can have severe consequences and in the worst cases can lead to parties being listed as sanctioned parties. Therefore, carefully worded sanctions clauses in charter parties and other contracts are vital for internationally trading companies to help them manage and mitigate their sanctions risk and to enable them to continue to do business while remaining compliant with the various sanctions regimes. This clause is intended for use in all trades except for container trades. A separate sanctions clause for the container trades is under development. This clause was published on 19 December 2019. It replaces the Sanctions Clause for Time Charter Parties 2010 and the Designated Entities Clause for Charter Parties 2013 (which have been combined to make a new single clause for ease of incorporation).
