This publication relates to English law and has been revised to reflect the changes in insurance practice that took place when the SG form of policy was replaced by the MAR form and associated new Institute clauses. However, it retains material from the first edition that is of value to markets where the SG form of policy, and relevant hull insurance conditions, are still in use.

 

This second edition also examines the structural and procedural changes effected since publication of the first edition, including the introduction of LIMNET (London Insurance Market Network), the restructure of Lloyd’s into a ‘single’ market and changes in placing and claims procedures.

Author’s Preface to the Second Edition

 

Marine insurance practice is constantly changing to keep pace with the demands of the trading markets it exists to serve. The first edition of this book sold out at a time when the London marine insurance market was entering a phase of transition and it seemed advisable not to reprint the book until things had settled down, so to speak. This proved to be a wise decision because the first edition examined the hull insurance contract as one based on the SG form of policy and considered practice in relation to Institute clauses designed for attachment to the SG form of policy; whereas the London market, in fact, replaced the SG form of policy with a simpler form of document known as the MAR form. The new form was adopted by the London hull insurance market in October 1983; and new Institute clauses were published for use with the new policy form. It follows that the first edition needed a complete revision to embrace the new form of contract used in the London hull insurance market. On the face of it such a revision would present no major problem if this book were designed for use solely in the London market. However, sales indicate that the book is used on a worldwide basis and research has shown that there are many markets outside the UK where the SG form of policy continues to be used. In order to provide a practical reference work which is suitable for insurance practitioners worldwide I decided to rewrite Volume 3; introducing the new hull insurance conditions whilst retaining such material from the first edition as is of value to markets where the SG form of policy, and relevant hull insurance conditions, are still in use. It would be confusing if one attempted to compare UK law regarding the marine insurance contract, and the responsibilities of parties connected therewith, with the laws of every other country in the world; so, except where stated otherwise, all comments herein relate to English law and practice.

 

During the five years it has taken to research and rewrite Hull Practice the London insurance market has seen dramatic structural and procedural changes. These include the introduction of LIMNET (London Insurance Market Network), restructure of Lloyd’s into a ‘single’ market and changes in placing and claims procedures. The new edition incorporates comment on these changes insofar as they affect marine hull insurance.
