Bulk Shipping Quality Clause for Voyage Charter Parties 2000

18 October 2023

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.
