The analysis, which examined hull and P&I claims over a four-year period ending June 30, 1999, revealed that claims levels have fallen by about 30 percent in both categories for vessel types that were required to achieve certification by July 1, 1998, versus vessels subject to a July 1, 2002 deadline.
