IUMI Webinars picking up steam

By Hendrike Kühl, IUMI Policy Director

Following our kick-off seminar on the SOLAS container weighing rules, our webinar programme continued in August with a webinar on the challenge of insuring perishables. Johan Van der Meirsch, Manager Marine Department / Senior Surveyor at DP Survey, shared valuable insights into pre-shipment condition of perishable cargo, transport related risks and claims at final destination.

This month we launch a webinar series with three consecutive seminars on General Average and the York Antwerp Rules (YAR). Ben Browne (a partner at Thomas Cooper LLP, chairman of the London Admiralty Solicitors Group, IUMI’s representative during the negotiations which led to the YAR 2004 and 2016 and on the Committee monitoring the new YAR Guidelines) explains what General Average is, how it operates in the context of the YAR, its procedure, security and defences. The next session on the YAR is scheduled for September 13, 14:00-15:00 CEST. Registration is available here.  

A number of further webinars on topical issues is currently under construction and will be announced soon. Please contact the IUMI secretariat with any suggestions and ideas you may have. Recordings and slides of the webinars are available here.
