P&I WEEK 2019

HFW is delighted to announce its annual P&I Week which is taking place w/c 14 October and is aimed at key stakeholders within the P&I industry.


14-17 October 2019


HFW, Friary Court


The theme for this year is "IMO 2020: Claims and Catastrophes", centred around a fictional case study set in January 2020 involving a voyage from Singapore to South Africa, a main engine failure and a collision between two vessels in South Africa. The facts of the case study give rise to a number of claims, catastrophes and other potential hurdles linked to the new IMO 2020 regulations, which come into effect from 1 January 2020.

The week consists of six different presentations discussing the new regulatory background and the potential impact for the industry outside of the regulatory context. As part of this, the presenters will consider how the new regulations may impact and link to other issues, and will also examine the implications for insurers arising out of IMO 2020 generally and in relation to the case study, with variations to tease out other issues relating to compliance (or otherwise) with Marpol Annex VI.
