About the Event

The Maritime Knowledge Shipping Session (MKSS) is a seminar co-organised by the SMF and the General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIA). The 42nd session will be on the theme “Container Ship Stack Collapses at Sea & Vessel Decarbonisation” and SMF Executive Director Tan Beng Tee will be closing the session.

Container ship stack collapses at sea have commercial risks involved and the costs from such incidents may accumulate after such events. The session will explain how legal agreements can offer protection against liability following such events and explore how the stricter carbon emission standards imposed by the International Maritime Organisation for maritime decarbonisation have implications on marine insurance.
