Led by Ian Perrott, CEO, ER Offshore & Tony Concagh, Partner, Stephenson Harwood LLP
Lancaster London Hotel (Beech Suite)
This half-day workshop was designed to bring you up to speed with how the standard OSV charterparty may need to be amended to address the effects of the MLC 2006. There are many clauses impacted by the ratification of MLC 2006, failure to understand the potential risks and ramifications of these is not to be taken lightly. This half-day workshop ensured awareness of the risks and suitable corrective actions to be taken as necessary.

This workshop was designed for Chartering Managers, Contracts Managers, Contracts Administrators and Commercial Managers from Owners and Charterers as well as Maritime Lawyers who look after this area for their clients.
