TT Talk 214 – VGM: latest IMO advice

by admin


TT Club is providing an important update to all stakeholders in the international supply chain industry, who are incorporated in this recent document released by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Many will already be well prepared for this mandatory law entering force in just five weeks. Those who are not are in increasing danger of incurring commercial cost and delay, and may face regulatory censure as well. The IMO approach should protect those who try to comply; it is no comfort for those who seek to ignore or circumvent the law.

If you would like further information on any point or have any comments please email us. We look forward to hearing from you.
