This is the second series of workshops with a theme of “Interdisciplinary Maritime Practice” (IMP), which is jointly organized by The Hong Kong Logistics Management Staff Association (HKLMSA), C.Y. Tung International Centre for Maritime Studies, PolyU (ICMS) and the Hong Kong Seamen Union (HKSU). It employs the same methodology and format like the IMP Workshop Series I of 2014, which was conceived to cover the entire lifespan of a ship, from the decision to purchase to its final loss or scrapping, and to provide a platform for eminent professionals from the Hong Kong Maritime Industry to share their expertise and valuable experience with fellow professionals, young entrants in particular, in the shipping fraternity of the Greater China Region, in interactive sessions of Q&A discussions.


The Eleventh Session of the IMP Workshop Series II is on Casualty Management Part III focusing on the various actions and claims aspects arising from the casualty (collision followed by fire and grounding):

  • Surveys
  • General Average where the voyage is abandoned
  • Constructive Total Loss of the vessel
  • Additional Insurances following a maritime casualty
  • Examination of Average Adjustment by Underwriters Claims Adjuster

Moderators for this 11h Session will be Mr. Raymond Wong of Asia Maritime Adjusters, Mr. Wallace Yeung of Gard (HK) Ltd., and Capt. Richard Gains of Brookes Bell Hong Kong Ltd.

Mr. Wong will preside over the case study as Average Adjuster jointly with Mr. Yeung as Underwriters Claims Adjuster, highlighting differences in cover and treatment of certain areas between the ITC-Hulls and the Nordic Plan. Capt. Gains will speak on surveying aspect of casualty management.
