Agency appointments are often agreed over the phone or by email. But with ship operations becoming ever more complex, there is a growing need for a standard agreement that clearly sets out the services to be performed by the agents and the liabilities and responsibilities of both parties.
A panel will discuss the new agreement and highlight its key benefits for agents and their principals:
FONASBA General Manager, Jonathan Williams, will also give an overview of the FONASBA Quality Standard Certification scheme for ship agents.
Viewers will be able to ask the panel questions (questions can also be submitted in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org).

The Agency Appointment Agreement can be found on the BIMCO website.

Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) publish regular Bunker Alerts based entirely on fuel samples and have kindly permitted BIMCO’s Members to access this information.
The Bunker Alerts are not intended to be an evaluation of overall bunker quality in the port or area concerned, but usually highlight a specific parameter within the fuel which has raised a quality issue.
