BUNKER DISPUTE RESOLUTION WORKSHOP

Tuesday 24 May 2016 ~ 09:00 -12:00

This highly professional interactive workshop on bunker dispute resolution will address the causes of bunker disputes, the resolution of those disputes when they happen and the avoidance of those disputes so that they don’t happen in the first place. It will look at how changing economic and regulatory conditions may give rise to new disputes – whether about bunker quality, quantity, delivery or payment issues – and examine ways that such disputes may be resolved.

Participants will share examples of contemporary, real-life disputes. The training process will provide enough basic training to help participants make significant financial savings before any actual bunker disputes arise, including avoiding and resolving those disputes economically if and when they do arise.
