Roanoke Insurance Webinar: New Federal Maritime Commission Rules (FMC) and Safety of Life at Sea (“SOLAS”) Convention

About the Webinar

Join us for this concise overview covering new Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) bond regulations as they pertain to ocean transportation intermediaries. The presenter will also address the International Maritime Organization (IMO) guidelines which become effective July 1, 2016. These guidelines are a part of the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention and will require the shipper of a loaded container, regardless of who packed it, to verify and provide the container’s verified gross mass to the ocean carrier and to the port terminal operator. NVOCCs and other intermediaries as shippers will be subject to the requirement.
