This publication introduces readers to P&I Club representation, detailing requirements for hull and machinery (H&M) and protection and indemnity (P&I) insurance. P&I underwriting is also examined through subjects such as obtaining income from premiums. The book is supported by extracts from the ISM Code, outlining the safety requirements shipping companies should endeavour to meet. Detail is given on risks excluded from P&I insurance, such as loss of hire and war. It is a key reference book for North’s long established educational courses on the topic of marine insurance.

10.5 Summary

Ships’ Masters, officers and those working within the shipping industry will be aware that unforeseen incidents can and do occur. Fortunately, most of these incidents are minor and do not result in significant repercussions or a claim against the ship. However, sometimes incidents can be more serious and it is for the liabilities arising from these incidents that marine insurance, including protection and indemnity (P&I) insurance, is provided.

 

This publication examines the development of marine insurance leading to the formation of P&I Clubs. It gives an overview of P&I Clubs, including how they work with correspondents to provide a worldwide service. It also looks at the role of the International Group of P&I Clubs (also referred to as the International Group or ‘IG’). It is important to understand the insurance requirements of a ship operator and how P&I Clubs provide an important component of that insurance.

 

Insurance exists to avoid or minimise financial uncertainty. In the case of a shipowner, insurance is usually confined to the financial consequences of damage to its own ship, death or injury to people, or damage to other people’s property. These are all risks that the insured person or company could not reasonably foresee or avoid. There are two principal types of marine insurance:

 

  • • Hull and machinery insurance (H&M)
  • • protection and indemnity insurance (P&I).

 

The shipowner may also have additional requirements for which other insurance cover is available, including freight, demurrage and defence (FD&D) insurance, war risks insurance and strike insurance. All of these will be detailed throughout the course of the publication.
