Current Issues 

Members' attention is drawn to the US Advisory in the links section. This has been produced after months of liaison with industry and is non-mandatory. It will be for individual underwriting entities to review and decide how to best demonstrate appropriate due diligence. During the liaison, it was explained that sanctions breaches render insurance cover inoperable, AIS tracking is not in itself capable of preventing transgressions and that insurers do not have constabulary powers, so it is hoped that Flag States will demonstrate leadership as Panama and Pulau recently have.   

  • Coronavirus and contingent effects
  • The Future at Lloyd's initiative
  • Sanctions
  • ESG and its ramifications

 

LMA Marine Forums

The forums provide an opportunity for the Joint Chairs to update the market on the wide range of work being undertaken by the Joint Committees. If any underwriter would like an issue raised at Committee level, please let either the relevant Chairman or secretary know.
