Hull Fouling: The Legal and the Practical - Webinar and Publication
- Date: 09/11/2020
As 2020 draws to an end, it has been a year characterised by interruptions to supply chains, humanitarian crises and increased layers of complexity in international trade due to the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the issues the industry has had to grapple with this year is the emergence of increasingly restrictive quarantine requirements. Although thrown into sharp relief in the context of crew changes, one of the related lower profile consequences has been an increase in the risk of hull fouling due to the resulting increase in delays in port or the use of ships as floating storage.
Hull fouling claims typically involve an interesting interplay between practical and legal aspects. In this publication, we delve into each of these aspects and consider how the landscape is developing in respect of this type of claim.
