P&I Guidelines

Practical Notes for Ships' Personnel

In the event of an accident or incident that may result in claims, a favourable outcome often depends on the availability of accurate information and good records. The Club's P&I Guidelines - Practical Notes for Ships' Personnel, have been produced to remind crewmembers of the information that needs to be collated, recorded and provided to the Club in order to best protect the interests of personnel and the company operating the vessel following a claim.

As well as focusing on the types of claims most frequently encountered by the Club, including personal injury, collisions and property damage, cargo claims and marine pollution, the guidelines also contain precautionary measures that should be taken to help reduce the likelihood of claims occurring.

The P&I Guidelines are available as a softback A5 booklet and as an encapuslated A1 wallchart, copies of which can be downloaded as PDF files by clicking on the appropriate thumbnail or publication title below. Members requiring additional hard copies of the booklet and wallchart should contact the Loss Prevention department.
