In our second video of a three-part series, we speak with Dr. Tim Moss of Brookes Bell who explains the cause and effect of ship sweat. He sets out the two alternative Rules – the Dew Point Rule and the 3 Degree Rule that inform the Master and crew when and when not to ventilate during the ship’s passage.  As further explained in our article – Introducing the Master’s Checklists for Loading and Carriage of Soya Beans - proper ventilation and record keeping, are important to defend claims. The third and final video in the series will explore the commercial and legal landscape underpinning the spate of high value claims arising from microbiological instability in shipments of soya beans from Brazil to China.
