In July 2020, the National Cargo Bureau (NCB) published a white paper advocating for a comprehensive approach to address the challenging issue of misdeclared and undeclared dangerous goods. The document outlines the significant risks to which crews, ships, cargoes and the environment are exposed to when dangerous goods (DG) are not shipped in compliance with the necessary rules and regulations. The continuous growth of the size of containerships which are carrying ever more containers represents a further increase of accumulation risk. This issue has long been a serious concern for marine insurers and IUMI therefore strongly supports the recommendations set out in the NCB paper.
In this webinar, Ian Lennard, President at National Cargo Bureau, addresses the need for reform and offers guidance for enhanced compliance and safety related to the transport of DG cargo.
The audience was invited to participate in a Q&A.
