GUARDCON – Time Charter Party Clause 

Following the publication of the GUARDCON contract, BIMCO has received a request for a “GUARDCON Clause” for time charter parties to regulate the use of armed/unarmed guards under a time charter party whereby the charterers request, arrange and pay for the security guards – but where the registered owners remain the party signing the employment contract with the private maritime security company. Drafting work will begin shortly.
