International Group introductory video
The thirteen principal underwriting associations which comprise the International Group between them provide liability cover (protection and indemnity) for approximately 90% of the world's ocean-going tonnage.
The day-to-day work of the Group is carried out through a large number of Subcommittees and Working Groups which deal with a broad range of legal, regulatory and insurance issues impacting on shipowners, operators and charterers.
