Average Bond Clause 2007

04 July 2017

The BIMCO Average Bond Clause 2007 has been updated. The main change is in the final paragraph where the shorter limitation period previously applicable to adjustments arising under the York Antwerp Rules 2004 no longer applies. As a result, in all cases rights to claim under the clause have been brought into line with the six-year limitation period under English law. A number of minor editorial improvements have also been made. The clause is for use only in contracts of carriage where General Average is to be adjusted, stated and settled according to the York-Antwerp Rules 1994. If the York-Antwerp Rules 2016 apply to the underlying contract, the BIMCO Average Bond Clause 2018 must be used.

General Average Absorption Clause 2018

04 July 2017

The BIMCO Standard General Average Absorption Clause, for use in marine insurance policies, was updated in 2017 to give effect to the revised York-Antwerp Rules 2016. Further modifications have now been made to streamline the basis for determining insurers’ payments.  Details are set out below together with advice on adapting the clause where the underlying marine insurance policy covers more than one vessel. The 2018 clause should be used in place of the 2017 provision. The original 2002 version of the Clause, based on the York-Antwerp Rules 1994, should no longer be used.
