BIMCO seeks industry help to combat fake contracts

11 February 2021

Much of the shipping industry relies on BIMCO standard contracts. The contracts provide a familiar and secure contractual base on which parties can freely negotiate. However, the trust in the standard forms is undermined by fake copies that contain errors or even deliberately hidden changes to the wording. BIMCO wants your help to combat the industry’s often unknowing use of counterfeit copies of BIMCO forms.

It is suitable for use for both operating and finance leases, although it may need to be adjusted as appropriate. The latest edition of this contract is SHIPLEASE, issued in 2020.

BARGEHIRE 2021

24 February 2021

This is the latest edition of BARGEHIRE which is a bareboat charter party specifically designed for unmanned, non-self-propelled seagoing barges. It is a lease agreement whereby the charterer obtains possession and full control of the barge along with the legal and financial responsibility for it as further detailed in the BARGEHIRE. The charterer generally pays for operating expenses such as maintenance and repairs but, unlike bareboat chartered ships, barges are often chartered with owner’s Hull & Machinery insurance made available to the charterer. Although not as often, Protection & Indemnity insurance can also be made available to charterers, especially when the duration of the contract is short. Copyright in BARGEHIRE 2021 is held by BIMCO.
