NIGERIA – P&I CLUB COVER FOR VESSELS CALLING AT NIGERIAN. PORTS

As from 1 October 2000 agents in Nigerian ports are required to furnish the authority with details of the P&I Club cover for the vessel they represent.

The information, to include the name of the insurance company, address and policy number, should be indicated on the usual “Declaration/Undertaking Letter” for SEN-application (ship’s entry notice).  The new regulation will be strictly enforced.

In respect of product carriers where SEN is required, please note that no SEN number is applicable for cargoes to NNPC/PPMC.  However, it is uncertain at this stage how tanker agents will declare P&I Club cover to the port authority.
