Søren Larsen, BIMCO’s Deputy Secretary General, said:
“We are delighted that our close cooperation with ASBA and SMF has resulted in the completion of this major project to produce a much improved NYPE that will be of great benefit to the industry.
Inga Froysa, Chairperson of the BIMCO NYPE revision sub-committee, added:
BIMCO NYPE修訂委員會主席Inga Froysa補充道：
“Users of the current NYPE form will certainly still recognise and be familiar with the core elements of the time charter party, but they can also expect to see some significant changes and improvements.
“Notably, the contract incorporates many of the rider clauses that are routinely added to the existing NYPE – but we have made sure that any new clauses incorporated into the new NYPE are relevant, balanced and consistent with the other provisions.
“Overall, our aim was to create a modern NYPE with global appeal – and I believe that this has been achieved.”
Nigel Hawkins, Chairman of the ASBA drafting committee, said:
“The 1993 NYPE Charter Party was ripe for updating. ASBA is therefore pleased that with our friends at BIMCO and the Singapore Maritime Foundation we have agreed the wording of a NYPE fit for the present day. ASBA hope that the industry will find this new NYPE a clear and logical document, and, that the industry will note some familiar language contained in past NYPE documents.”
Michael Chia, Chairman of the Singapore Maritime Foundation, said:
"The revised NYPE is the first international shipping form that is a collective effort spanning the globe involving ASBA, BIMCO and the SMF. With the extensive global industry stakeholder consultation we believe that the end product is a contract that better meets user needs and will see quick acceptance and adoption."
