The newest entry in FONASBA’s suite of agency appointment documents (December 2017) is the General Agency Appointment agreement which is designed for longer term agency agreements than the previous Agency Appointment Agreement or those that cover a wider range of ports. The core form covers all the main terms of an agency agreement but in due course it will be supplemented by a range of trade-specific clauses that will further tailor the agreement to the specific needs of the sector.  As with the earlier AAA, the new form was developed in cooperation with BIMCO. Further information can be found in Documentation.
