The UK Protection & Indemnity Club (P&I Club) will advance its plans for making an up-to-date list of insured ships available on its electronic databases and its Internet web site. The move follows discussions at a recent seminar in Sydney organised by Transport Mutual Services, the general correspondents of the UK P&I Club for Australia, on co-operation with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) in the event of a major shipping disaster. The seminar was attended by representatives of the club's legal correspondents, AMSA and the inspector of marine accidents. AMSA also provided guidance on the immediate questions to be answered by the club and its general correspondents in the aftermath of a major casualty, including details of the ship's limit of liability under the civil liability convention and the 1976 limitation convention. Captain Kit Filor, inspector of marine accidents, explained the legal framework within which his inquiries are conducted, and discussed the connections between his investigative work and that of the club's lawyers and other experts. The seminar discussed moves in Europe and Australia to require ships to carry certificates of entry from recognised P&I insurers. It was the first time the UK P&I Club had worked with a maritime safety authority to plan co-operation in the event of a major casualty.
