Bulk Shipping Quality Clause for Voyage Charter Parties 2000

06 October 2016

In November 1998, BIMCO was approached by the European Community Shipowners’ Association (ECSA) to discuss the possibility of developing a Recommended Quality Clause that would encourage the practical implementation of the European Shippers Council (ESC) “Voluntary Code of Best Practice”.  The ESC’s Code was published as a self-regulatory measure in support of the European Community’s Quality Shipping Campaign.  In recognition of BIMCO’s role as the shipping industry’s lead organisation in the development of standard clauses, ECSA and ESC felt that BIMCO was the most appropriate body to produce such a clause.  As a signatory of the Maritime Industry Charter on Quality, BIMCO was keen to demonstrate its support for the initiative to promote a quality culture throughout the industry by all participants.  Of paramount importance to BIMCO was to ensure that by developing a Standard Quality Clause for the industry, the risk of a proliferation of charterer-inspired quality-related clauses was kept to a minimum.

Anti Corruption Clause for Charter Parties 2015

17 October 2016

The Anti-Corruption Clause for Charter Parties 2015 provides market users with a regime for responding to unlawful demands for gifts in cash or kind, such as cigarettes or alcohol. It is designed for use in both voyage and time charters and sets out a series of steps with the contracting parties working together to resist such demands but if this fails, owners’ rights to hire or uninterrupted laytime and demurrage are protected. Termination, by either party, is the ultimate sanction but a high threshold has been set so that it cannot be easily used as an exit from an inconvenient charter. This clause was published on 7 December 2015.
