UK DC Soundings: New Zeland Biofouling

Following the introduction in 2018 of new biofouling regulations for ships visiting New Zealand, Intertanko have now issued practical guidance to owners which addresses and clarifies some of the issues relating to the new requirements. As these relatively stringent new regulations present a number of technical, commercial and practical implications for owners and charterers, Members are recommended to take note of all available guidance and take protective measures to minimise disruption under charterparties.

Learn more about this and other cases by visiting the 'Insights' section on the UK Defence Club website.
