In addition to our previous publications regarding the Covid-19 virus, and the extent to which the virus is affecting the maritime industry, we provide this update. Given the fact that Covid-19 will continue to affect the maritime industry in the coming period, more and more countries, organizations and ports are implementing measures and restrictions to combat the spread of the virus.
One of our reinsurers, the North of England Protecting and Indemnity Association Limited, has created a platform in which they list the current restrictions and rules per country that the country, port authorities or organizations have to comply with and that vessels have to take into account.
The information is available on their website.
We advise our members to check the measures prior to a port call per country and port, in order to ensure compliance with the measures and to take into account the possible restrictions.
Of course, our members can always contact our employees with specific questions.
