The new digital BIMCO Bulletin is out

26 November 2018

The new BIMCO magazine the “Bulletin” is out with articles covering the effect of the US-China trade war, the 2020 sulphur limit and the challenges of ship recycling and ballast water management. “The shipping industry is taking major steps and making huge investments to be ready for (2020) compliance. It is only fair that the nation states party to Annex VI of the MARPOL Convention live up to their end of the agreement,” BIMCO’s Secretary General, Angus Frew, points out in his foreword. Also, read the latest market analysis by Peter Sand and read why now is the wrong time to do business as usual as the trade war rages on.

Vessel Traffic Separation

12 September 2016

With the completion of the VTS system and the related Data Handling System, the Port Management now has one of the world's most advanced safety systems for the control of shipping. However, it is always open to improvement.  The Vessel Traffic Management System (VTMS) is in operation for the approaches to Europoort and the New Waterway; it covers an area from 45 miles West of Noorderhoofd up to 2 miles East of the van Brienenoord Bridge and 4 miles East of the Spijkenisse Bridge in the Oude Maas river, including all adjacent harbour basins.  The area is divided into three regions, each having its own Traffic Centre to communicate with the shipping (VHF 13). The three regions are sub-divided into 12 sectors, each having a traffic attendant and a seperate VHF-channel. Traffic centre Hook of Holland:  Maas Approach VHF 1  Pilot Maas VHF 2  Maas Entrance VHF 3  Waterweg VHF 65  Europoort VHF 66 Traffic centre Botlek:  Maassluis VHF 80  Botlek VHF 61  Oude Maas VHF 62 Traffic centre City:  Eemhaven VHF 63  Waalhaven VHF 60  Maasbruggen VHF 81  Brienenoord VHF 21

Arrest Clause for Voyage Charter Parties 2019

07 February 2019

Arrest clauses in charter parties are frequently one-sided with charterers having the right to terminate the charter party if the ship is not released within two or three days of an arrest. To provide a fairer allocation of risk and responsibility in the event of ship arrest BIMCO has developed two new standard clauses for time and voyage charter parties. Risk allocation is based on the “sphere of responsibilities” approach taken by the Court of Appeal of England and Wales in the "Global Santosh" judgment . Under this approach, a distinction is drawn between issues such as the management of the ship and its crew, which fall within the owners’ sphere of responsibility, and employment for use of the ship which falls within the charterers’ sphere of responsibility. This clause was published on 14 June 2019.
