Transport, Shipping, International trade Web-couse: “Ship arrest and release in Black sea region”

07/ 05/ 2020
  Arrest is an effective mechanism for forcing a shipowner or charterer to fulfill his obligations. At the 11th English-language webinar on Transport, Shipping and International Trade Web-course, together with the speakers of the meeting, the issues related to the arrest and release of ships in Ukraine, Romania and Georgia were discussed. Particular attention was paid to the conditions to be met for arrest and the evidence base to substantiate a maritime claim. Thus, a maritime claim arises in one or more of the following circumstances: causing damage to the ship in a collision or otherwise; causing harm to life or health of a person by a vessel or in connection with its operation; rescue; general accident, etc. The full list is given in the International Convention for the unification of certain rules relating to Arrest of Sea-going Ships (hereinafter referred to as the 1952 Arrest Convention). Moreover, in order to detain the vessel in the port of stay, a number of evidences are provided to the court. These include: a contract confirming the fulfillment of contractual obligations; certificates, general declaration or other documents stating the information on the ownership of the vessel; and evidence confirming the vessels location (certificate issued by the port captain or information from the MarineTraffic website). Furthermore, please note, the arrest may be imposed on any ship, including ships flying the flag of a state which is not a State-Party of the 1952 Arrest Convention. We hope that now you have a general review of the issue of ship arrest in the Black Sea region! See you at the next course webinars!
