More on sanctions

Sanctions can have implications for shipowners as they may face higher expectations on sanctions due diligence and vessel monitoring towards the shipping industry, including insurance.


In line with their legal and regulatory obligations, all Clubs in the International Group maintain sophisticated sanctions compliance programmes and procedures. The rules and procedures developed by Clubs to manage sanctions risks take account of the guidance provided by bodies such as the UN Security Council (UNSCR), the UK Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI), the US State Department and the US Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

The ability to track vessels using their AIS (“Automatic Identification Systems”) has become an increasingly important part of Clubs’ sanctions compliance programmes. All International Group Clubs have now agreed a common minimum standard of tracking.
