The shipping industry’s most widely used dry cargo voyage charter party, GENCON, is being revised and updated for the first time in 25 years. This seminar will explore some of the proposed key changes to GENCON including Clause 2 (Owner’s Responsibility) and Clause 10 (Bills of lading/Waybills); safe ports/berths; and Strike Clause versus Force Majeure Clause.
BIMCO’s objective is to produce a much more clearly worded and comprehensive set of terms and conditions with fewer implied terms. But is GENCON’s popularity firmly rooted in its familiarity, simplicity and brevity? How far can the revision go and still be acceptable to the industry?
This seminar will be followed by a Reception kindly hosted by Clarksons Platou.
