PFAS Exclusion Clauses

The International Liability and US Liability panels have jointly produced two model clauses to exclude liability for Perfluorinated Compounds, Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS).

We are also considering development of additional clauses in this area.

An LMA briefing event for the two clauses will take place details of which will be circulated shortly.

All LMA model clauses are purely illustrative and are published and distributed for the guidance of Lloyd’s managing agents, brokers and other market participants. All contracting parties are free to agree to different conditions/amend the model clauses as they see fit; the LMA does not protect its intellectual property rights over model clauses. It is for underwriters to decide whether or not any contractual language is acceptable on any given risk.
