제목 : 싱가포르 해사항만청, 앵커 유실 사고에 대한 입장 변화
우리 클럽 현지 Correspondent인, SPICA SERVICES (S) PTE
LTD에 따르면 싱가폴에서 앵커를 유실한 선박에 대한 현지 해사항만청의 입장이 최근 바뀌었다고 합니다. 과거에는 싱가포르 해사항만청(CPA)이 유실된 앵커에 대한 수색
및 제거에 대하여 관여를 하지 않았으나 최근에는 유실된 앵커를 직접 제거하거나 선박의 출항
허가 절차(선장사고보고서, 해사항만청 요청양식, 선급보고서, LoU 제출 등)를
변경하는 등 그 입장을 바꾼 것으로 보입니다. 이와 관련하여 다음의 현지 Correspondent 원문을 참조하시기 바랍니다.
have recently experienced a change in how the Maritime Port Authority (MPA) of
Singapore acts in cases of lost anchors within Singapore waters. It will be
helpful for Owners, Clubs, H&M Underwriters, Brokers, etc. to know.
the past the MPA would not get involved in search for and retrieval of lost
anchors. Their only interaction was a Notice to Retrieve (NTR) issued on the
agent/vessel, and then to be kept informed of the progress.
have now taken a more active role. They now involve themselves directly with
the local contractors. This has also changed the procedure for getting
permission to leave Singapore.
note that the information here only relates to government interaction. Any
Class requirements when losing anchors also need to be followed by the Owner.
MPA is first looking for the following documents to be submitted to them,
followed by a separate LOU (see below).
Master SOF over incident.
MPA standard form “Master’s
authorization to appoint Solicitor” to be signed by
Master and countersigned by agents and/or owners.
MPA standard “Report of a Marine Casualty or Marine
Vessel anchor specs/drawing.
Class survey report.
of Undertaking (LOU)
of the work will (likely) be conducted by the MPA themselves, so they will be
asking for a standard LOU form to be provided by the Club, H&M, or its
representative. The LOU wording is not controversial, but it does require a
quantum to be inserted and should reflect the costs for the MPA.
Club Correspondent in Singapore, we are of course able to assist the Club with
advice on the correct level of the LOU, facilitate the production of the LOU,
and speak directly with the MPA if this is necessary for the earliest release
of the vessel.
recent change of procedure will likely require a ‘trial period’, and we are continuously in discussions with the MPA. We
would therefore encourage the Clubs, H&M, Brokers and the Members to voice
to us any concerns and comments you might have in the future.
