Unmanned vessels – legal aspects to consider from an insurance perspective

Unmanned ships trigger questions about how the maritime legal framework should address this development. This is becoming increasingly relevant across the maritime industry and to marine insurers in particular. Ideally, a joint set of rules and regulations should be developed, preferably in the framework of the IMO where in February a paper was submitted by nine flag states to propose a regulatory scoping exercise. The Comité Maritime International (CMI) has also recently established a Working Group on “Maritime law for unmanned craft” to consider how international conventions and regulations can be adapted to provide for the operation of unmanned vessels on the high seas. Although the discussions are only about to start it is conceivable already that unmanned ships will change the landscape of maritime law

In this webinar, Dr Maximilian Guth, Associate Partner at Dabelstein & Passehl, outlines various aspects of the recent developments in the view of the existing international conventions and the existing liability regimes from a marine insurance perspective taking into account existing insurance products for autonomous underwater vehicles.

Practical aspects of General Average

Building on our 2016 webinar series about General Average and the York-Antwerp Rules, we are pleased to announce  two special sessions focusing on the practical aspects of General Average with Michael Harvey, Fellow and past Chairman of the UK Association of Average Adjusters, past President of AMD (The International Association of Average Adjusters) and a Director of Harvey Ashby Ltd. In the webinars Michael will discuss the processes which occur from the time that a casualty happens until the General Average adjustment is issued using a real-life case study. Emphasis is placed on recognising and dealing with issues that may arise such as the provision of security (both for General Average and salvage) and the documents required to support the value of property and any claims in General Average.
