Gard Guidance Masters RECEIVING A PROTEST

Utmost care should be exercised when

  • receiving a protest which the Master is requested to sign
  • making a statement following an incident.

    If the contents of the protest received cannot be verified and the Master is not satisfied that it reflects the facts, he/she should always clause the protest “for receipt only and without admission of contents”.

    Should the Master be requested to sign a statement following an incident, he/she should contact the local correspondents of the P&I or Hull and Machinery insurers for assistance prior to signing.
