MARINE INSURANCE AND CARGO CLAIMS

 

At present there is no compulsion to insure cargo or goods being carried at sea.  Accidents, damage and loss to cargo continue to occur during sea-passage despite the implementation of safety standards.  Ship owners accept limited liability in respect of loss or damage to cargo being carried under Bill of Lading governed by the hague rules and similar international laws and conventions.  Documentary credit arrangements may require insurance on goods depending on the terms of sale e.g. CIF sale.  The Caribbeans’ heavy reliance on import and export cargo demands that marine insurance be considered as a high priority in respect of the carriage of goods by sea.

 

OBJECTIVES

The course will assist participants in identifying the requisite insurance for vessels and cargo being carried at sea and to assist in he processing of claims following loss or damage.
