Rule 41 General average

The Association shall cover:

a) the proportion of general average, special charges or salvage which a Member may be entitled to claim from cargo or from any other party to the marine adventure and which is not legally recoverable solely by reason of a breach of the contract of carriage. Where contributing cargo or any other contributing asset belongs to the Member, the Member shall be entitled to recover from the Association as if that contributing asset had belonged to a third party;

b) the Ship's proportion of general average, special charges or salvage not recoverable under the Hull Policies solely by reason of the value of the Ship being assessed for contribution to general average or salvage at a value in excess of the sums insured under the Hull Policies, provided that cover shall only be available under this Rule 41(b) in any particular case if the Association shall in its absolute discretion so determine.
