Nairobi Convention expanded

London P&I has issued a note to Members, stating that. Although they will already be aware of the requirements of the Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks, which entered into force in April 2015 in various countries, they should take note that the Convention will shortly come into force in Finland (January 27th 2017) China (February 11th 2017).

The Club said that Members with vessels of 300gt and above trading to those countries and/or to their respective territorial seas on or after the dates specified “should ensure that they have the appropriate Wreck Removal Certificate of Insurance on board.”
