Maritime London member Britannia has become the first P&I Club to be accepted as a member of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN).
Established in 2011 by a group of maritime companies committed to eradicating the industry of all forms of corruption, MACN has grown into a global business network of over 100 members, representing a sizeable percentage of the global fleet.
“We’re proud to be the first P&I Club to have been accepted as a member of MACN,” said Andrew Cutler, ceo of Britannia’s managers Tindall Riley. “Tackling corruption is vital to ensure that companies in the maritime sector can protect their crew and staff, reduce operational risk, and trade fairly and on an equal footing. Britannia is often called for support whenever a member resists unlawful demands and the liberty of the ship or crew is threatened. In this context, P&I Clubs play a vital role when their members stand up to corrupt demands.”
