FD&D provides cover for members’ expenses incurred in defending or pursuing legal proceedings in relation to the operation of their owned/operated or chartered ships. This is also known as freight, demurrage and defence (FD&D) cover.

Such costs will typically arise out of disputes under:

  • charterparties
  • bills of lading
  • cargo operations
  • other operational agreements
  • new building and conversion disputes by special agreement

The standard limit of cover offered is $5m, but higher limits are available.

See our latest Defence Class Rules for full policy details.
