Tanker Management and Self Assessment (TMSA) Liability Clause - update

In Weekly NEWS No. 25 of 24 June 2005 we published an article giving a Tanker Management and Self Assessment (TMSA) Liability Clause for use by members. However, we have become aware that it is not possible to include the clause in the electronic submission of the TMSA and we are currently requesting the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) to amend its software to allow owner input. We will advise if this is possible in due course.  

In the meantime, we suggest that if an owner wishes to make use of the liability clause, then this can be undertaken when an oil company requests access to an owner's TMSA. At that stage the owner should send the TMSA liability clause in an e-mail to the oil company when agreeing to the release of their TMSA data.
