Rule 3 Entries

1 Application for an entry of a ship may be made by any owner, operator, charterer (including a bareboat or demise charterer) or other insurer of that ship, and the entry shall be on the basis of either an Owner's Entry or a Charterer's Entry.

2 A ship may be entered with the Association for less than its full tonnage.

3 Application for an entry of a ship shall be made in such form as may from time to time be required by the Association. The particulars given in any application form, together with any other particulars or information given in writing in the course of applying for insurance or negotiating changes in the terms of insurance, shall form the basis of the contract of insurance between the Member and the Association.

4 The Association may refuse to accept an application for the entry of a ship, or may accept an application for P&I cover but not for Defence cover, without stating grounds therefore, and whether or not the applicant is already a Member of the Association.
