Marine Insurance Coverage

Three types of marine cover that is defined in the Institute Cargo Clauses which are commonly adopted worldwide and is applicable to “dry cargoes” at your choice are:-

Institute Cargo Clauses (A) / (B) / (C)

There are two versions of the Institute Cargo Clauses, implemented on 1 Jan 1982 and 1 Jan 2009, and both versions are commonly in use by insurers worldwide. The basic coverage of both versions is similar, but with clearer definitions and limited extension in “duration” and other improvements in the latter version.
