Interspill Inform: Shipping and Salvage Webinar Series

CASUALTY MANAGEMENT – Updating the traditional process of casualty management in shipping to enable great proactive action to prevent environmental harm of losses. 24 May at 1500hrs BST.This webinar, the first in our Shipping and Salvage Series of Interspill Inform webinars, will look at what happens when a vessel gets into difficulty and follows the casualty management process, discussing the relevant law and using past incidents, such as the cruise ship Costa Concordia and the container vessel MV Rena to provide insight.Our speaker Sam Kendall-Marsden, the Director of Claims at Standard Club, is very experienced in this field. The second part of the webinar will be led by Jan De Boer, a senior legal officer at IMO. He will discuss how the various legal principles work to ensure prompt and effective removal of hazardous wrecks and lost cargo in the EEZ. How this can be applied worldwide and how oil and pollution risks are covered. He will also talk about the Nairobi convention and focus on places of refuge. This should be a fascinating webinar as we look into the work of casualty management. Since the loss of the MV Wakashio and MV X-Press Pearl are both recent incidents, speakers may not talk about them as they are subject to ongoing insurance and legal claims.
