**'Vetting Clauses - A Practical Guide' * * NEW PUBLICATION

 

For some time now INTERTANKO has been producing model vetting clauses for both time and voyage charter parties. These have been amended on a regular basis as circumstances change and they have proved to be successful and of immense value to our members.

 

They are aimed at helping members avoid the difficulties they could encounter after having agreed to a strong charterer's vetting clause that requires the owner to maintain "approvals" by either several named oil companies or in some cases "all" oil companies. In recent years we have seen oil companies avoid issuing "approvals", and thus it has become extremely difficult, or even impossible, to comply with such onerous charterers' clauses.

 

INTERTANKO's Vetting Committee therefore formed a small Working Group to address this issue, with assistance from INTERTANKO's Documentary Committee and Technical Tanker Committee.

 

The outcome of this Working Group's work is a booklet entitled 'Vetting Clauses – A Practical Guide', which we hope will offer useful help and advice to all our members, whether they wear an owner's or a charterer's hat.

 

In this booklet we highlight the pros and cons of each vetting clause using a selection of vetting clauses that exist today. We conclude by offering some guidelines on warranty clauses with particular regard to:

·          a hardship clause if it is not possible to appoint an inspector or an inspection is not possible;

·           reasonable time frames to allow the inspection to take place;

·          suitable non-fulfilment elements to protect the charterer.

 

In conclusion, the aim of this booklet is to make the reader aware of the alternatives that exist and to understand the responsibilities and risks involved in the drafting and acceptance of a vetting clause, as well as the benefits that can be derived from a clause that meets specific requirements.

'A Guide to the Vetting Process' 6th Edition

 

Extended and expanded 6th edition of 'A Guide to the Vetting Process' is now available.

 

INTERTANKO receives many requests for up-to-date information on the different ship inspection systems carried out by oil companies, port state control authorities, insurers, underwriters and other bodies. Such inspections form an essential part of the tanker vetting process.

 

To overcome the lack of available information on vetting inspection systems, and to assist tanker crews and onshore personnel, INTERTANKO has published the 6th edition of 'A Guide to the Vetting Process'. The publication provides a concise, yet comprehensive description of the principal tanker vetting systems.

 

This extended and expanded 6th edition is considered a MUST onboard each vessel and in shore offices to assist tanker crews and personnel ashore to better understand, and to be better prepared for, vetting inspections.

Discounts are available for multiple orders: 11-20: 5% 21-30: 10% 31-40: 15% 41 and above: 20%

 

Price: USD 130 for members/associate members USD 180 for non-members

Discounts for multiple orders: 11-20:5%; 21-30:10%; 31-40:15%; 41 and above:20%

'Commentary on SHELLVOY 6'


On 16 March 2005 Shell launched Shellvoy 6, its updated form of tanker voyage charterparty. Shell's stated intention is to include in the new form all current amendments issued since 1987 and to "clarify standard interpretations and practice". Shell issued the new form together with an explanatory note and its standard template for recaps (both charter in and charter out) and accompanying notes, as well as a note to brokers. The new charterparty form comprises three parts. Parts I and II form the main body of the form and Part III contains clauses for specific countries.

 

INTERTANKO's Commentary on Shellvoy 6 is not comprehensive as it is confined to the material new amendments not previously circulating in the market and focuses on Parts I and II of the new form. It should be read in conjunction with INTERTANKO's commentary on the SHELLVOY 5, which is published in 'A Guide to Tanker Charters', which remains relevant to many of the clauses in SHELLVOY 6.

 

Price: USD 75 for members/associate members; USD 125 for non-members

Discounts for multiple orders: 11-20:5%; 21-30:10%; 31-40:15%; 41 and above:20%
