Agency Appointment Agreement webinar


On 20 February 2017, BIMCO and FONASBA broadcasted a webinar to discuss the recently published Agency Appointment Agreement.

The webinar featured a panel of three members of the team involved in the development of the new form and was hosted by Pernille Kærvad Jacobsen, Manager, Contracts & Clauses at BIMCO:

  • John Foord - FONASBA President
  • Han van Blanken - BIMCO Documentary Committee member

During the broadcast, viewers were introduced to the new agency appointment agreement, and the panel explained the reasons for developing the agreement and responded to participants’ questions about the form.
