ISU Conference to Include Casualty Simulation

Tuesday, January 29, 2008
The significance of Lloyd’s Form (LOF), will provide the focus for the International Salvage Union’s Associate Members’ Day conference in London on April 2. This theme was chosen as 2008 is LOF’s centenary year. Peter Lee, the ISU’s Vice-President, will provide an overview of salvage in the Far East. He will be followed by Hugh Shaw, the newly-appointed UK SOSREP, who will give a paper entitled “Casualty response and decision making.” The morning programme also includes a paper marking LOF’s Centenary year. Appeal Arbitrator John Reeder QC will present this paper, “100 years of LOF: the contract’s 21st century significance.”

The Lloyd’s Form theme will continue with a presentation from ISU President Arnold Witte on “LOF and the defence of the marine environment.” This will examine, inter alia, the case for Environmental Salvage Awards. The conference then departs from its normal structure. The entire afternoon will be devoted to a major casualty simulation, concerning a challenging LOF salvage operation. All parties involved in a major casualty response will be represented during the simulation.
