Introduction

The rights and obligations of the Member and the Association pertaining firstly to membership of the Association and secondly, to the cover provided by the Association relate to the period during which Ships are entered in the Association. Accordingly, it is important to know when entries are terminated or cease and the effect of such termination or cesser on the rights and obligations of the Member and Association. A distinction is drawn in the Rules between termination and cesser. Rules 23 and 24 describe the circumstances in which the entry of one or more Ships may be terminated, i.e. by the positive act of, either, the Member or the Association. Rule 25 describes the circumstances in which cover will cease automatically on the occurrence of certain events without any such positive act. Rule 25.1 describes the circumstances in which cover will cease in respect of any and all Ships whereas Rule 25.2 describes the circumstances in which cover will cease in respect of individual Ships. Rule 26 describes the effect of termination or cesser on the respective rights and obligations of the Member and the Association.
