SMF, IGP&I ink deal on marine liability education

The agreement establishes a framework to enhance education and develop talent in the maritime industry.

The Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF) and the International Group of P&I Clubs (IGP&I) have signed a memorandum of understanding to work on promoting education and training of marine liability to the city-state’s talent pool.

The deal provides a framework to utilise the strengths and value propositions of both organisations to achieve the goal of providing high-quality education and the development of talent for the industry.

SMF and IGP&I will design and implement professional development courses on relevant topics, like introduction to protection & indemnity (P&I) insurance, limitation regimes, claims case studies, safety at sea, and liability and compensation.

SMF executive director Tan Beng Tee said the “MOU paves the way for both SMF and IGP&I to leverage on each other’s strengths to promote the maritime sector, raise the knowledge of P&I insurance, and build a maritime-ready workforce.”

Meanwhile, IGP&I CEO Nick Shaw said the organisation is committed to “supporting quality training and development globally within the maritime liability field.”
