BIMCO publishes Q&A on Infectious Diseases Clause


As part of its effort to openly share COVID-19 information and advice with the industry BIMCO has published a Q&A on its Infectious Diseases Clauses.

The Q&A is a collation of anonymised questions received by BIMCO’s Support & Advice Team together with our response. We will be adding more Q&A on a regular basis in response to the enquiries we receive on these important clauses. The Q&A is available to anyone from the public part of BIMCO’s website where a link will take you to our information hub.
