CMI GA Guidelines and Security Forms

28th March 2023 | Print version

In an effort to make the complex system of general average (GA) more accessible to parties not familiar with the subject the Comité Maritime International (CMI) has, through its Standing Committee (SC) on General Average, produced the following handbook which, in its annex, also contains recommended standard security forms for general average cases. The Guidelines as well as the security forms have also been approved by the International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI) and the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS). The document, as well as a short version of the guidance, can be downloaded here at the CMI website.
