INSTRUCTIONS IN CASE OF LOSS OR DAMAGE

IMPORTANT - These instructions are very important. Failure to comply with them may void the insurance claim under this policy.

In case of known or suspected loss or damage to goods insured by the Company, these instructions must be followed immediately:

A. Import Shipments:

In the event of loss or damage on import shipments, the consignee should notify their producer or the Company directly to arrange for a survey, if survey deemed necessary by the Company, of the damaged goods. If the goods are delivered in a damaged condition or short weight, the damage and count discrepancies (called "exceptions") must be written on the delivery receipt at the time of delivery. A written claim must be filed immediately with the cargo carriers describing the condition of the goods and holding the carriers liable for the loss or damage.

B. Export Shipments:

In the event of loss or damage on export shipments, the instructions on the certificate of insurance should be followed. The consignee must report the loss or damage immediately and request a survey without delay from the nearest:

1. Office of the Company

WAR RISK OPEN CARGO POLICY

This insurance policy witnesseth, that in consideration of premiums as agreed to be paid, the Company does make
insurance and cause “Insured” to be insured, lost or not lost, for account of whom it may concern, against war risks only, in accordance with the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth.

To apply to shipments made on or after November 1, 2019.

This Company shall not be liable hereunder for more than $ 500,000 by any one vessel.

In cases where the total value(s) at risk on any one vessel exceed(s) the Limit of Liability as set forth in this policy, the Insured agrees, nevertheless, to report to the Company full value(s) at risk and to pay premium thereon at the agreed rates. The Insured further agrees that acceptance of such reports and premium by the Company shall not serve to revoke or to overrule the Limit of Liability set forth in this policy; however, subject to the Limit of Liability, the Company in accepting these reports does agree to pay partial losses covered by this policy without reduction by reason of any coinsurance which otherwise may have existed in the absence of this special agreement.

Subject to the provisions of Clause 6 of this policy, should there be an accumulation of interests exceeding the above
Limit of Liability by reason of any interruption of transit beyond the control of the Insured or by reason of any casualty, and/or after the interests have been discharged from the incoming overseas vessel at an intermediate port or place for on-carriage from that or any other port or place by another overseas vessel, and/or on the oncarrying overseas vessel, this policy shall attach for the full amount at risk (but in no event for more than twice the policy limit which would be applicable to any one vessel) provided written notice be given to this Company as soon as known to the Insured.

This policy shall cover only those shipments which are insured against marine risks under Policy No. OMC 2451287 of this Company, it being agreed that the description of such shipments, the valuations thereof, the voyage, the designation of the overseas vessel (which shall be construed to include aircraft if included under the marine policy) on which the goods are to be carried and the ports and/or places of loading and discharge, as reported under the said policy against marine risks, shall be deemed incorporated herein. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this policy shall not cover purely domestic shipments by air between points in the United States of America (excluding Alaska and Hawaii).

Any loss payable hereunder shall be payable in funds current in the United States, to the order of Insured or order thirty (30) days after full proofs of loss and proofs of interest have been filed with the Company.

1. 
a.    This insurance is only against the risks of capture, seizure, destruction or damage by men-of-war, piracy, takings at sea, arrests, restraints, detainments, and other warlike operations and acts of kings, princes and peoples in prosecution of hostilities or in the application of sanctions under international agreements, whether before or after declaration of war and whether by a belligerent or otherwise, including factions engaged in civil war, revolution, rebellion or insurrection, or civil strife arising therefrom; the imposition of martial law, military or usurped power, and including the risk of aerial bombardment, floating or stationary mines and stray or derelict torpedoes. Warranted not to abandon (on any ground other than physical damage to ship or cargo) until after condemnation of the property insured.

b.    This insurance also covers, but only while the property insured is on board a waterborne conveyance, loss of or damage to said property directly caused by governmental authorities acting for the public welfare to prevent or mitigate a pollution hazard or threat thereof, provided that the accident or occurrence creating the situation which required such governmental action would have resulted in a recoverable claim under this policy (subject to all of its terms, conditions and warranties) if the property insured would have sustained physical loss or damage as a direct result of such accident or occurrence.

6.    Warranted free from any claim based upon loss of, or frustration of, the insured voyage or adventure caused by arrests, restraints or detainments.

7.    This insurance does not cover any loss, damage or expense directly or indirectly arising from, contributed to, or caused by any of the following, whether due to a peril insured against or otherwise:

4. 
a.    The insurance against the risks enumerated in clause 1., except the risks of floating or stationary mines and stray or derelict torpedoes, floating or submerged referred to in (b) below, shall not attach to the interest hereby insured or to any part thereof:

i.     Prior to being on board an overseas vessel (for the purpose of this Clause 4, an overseas vessel shall be deemed to mean a vessel carrying the interest from one port or place to another where such voyage involves a sea passage by that vessel).

ii.     After being discharged overside from an overseas vessel at the intended port or place of discharge or after expiry of fifteen (15) days from midnight of the day of arrival of the overseas vessel at the intended port or place of discharge, whichever shall first occur.

iii.     After expiry of fifteen (15) days from midnight of the day of arrival of the overseas vessel at an intermediate port or place to discharge the interest for on-carriage from that or any other port or place by another overseas vessel, but shall reattach as the interest is loaded on the on-carrying overseas vessel. During the said period of fifteen (15) days the insurance remains in force whether the interest is awaiting transit or in transit between the overseas vessels.

iv.     For the purpose of this Clause 4, arrival at the intended port or place of discharge shall be deemed to mean that time when the overseas vessel first berths, anchors, moors or is secured in an area subject to regulation by the authorities of such port or place.

b.    The insurance against the risks of floating or stationary mines and stray or derelict torpedoes, floating or submerged, attaches as the interest hereby insured is first loaded on a lighter, craft or vessel after leaving the warehouse at point of shipment in transit for the destination declared hereunder, and ceases to attach as the interest is finally landed from the vessel, craft or lighter prior to delivery to warehouse at such destination.

c.    If the Contract of Affreightment is terminated at a port or place other than the destination named therein such port or place shall be deemed the intended port or place of discharge for the purpose of this Clause 4.


d.    Shipments by mail, if covered by this policy, are insured continuously from the time of leaving the sender’s premises until delivered to the place of address.

e.    Shipments by air (other than by air mail), if covered by this policy, are insured subject to the same terms and conditions as shipments by overseas vessel.

f.    It is a condition of this insurance that the insured shall act with reasonable dispatch in all circumstances within their control.

g.    If anything contained in this policy shall be inconsistent with this Clause 4, it shall to the extent of such inconsistency be null and void.

5.    This insurance shall not be vitiated by deviation, overcarriage, change of voyage, or by any error or unintentional omission in the description of interest, vessel or voyage, provided the same be communicated to the Company as soon as known to the Insured and an additional premium paid if required.

6.    And in case of any loss or misfortune, it shall be lawful and necessary to and for the Insured, his or their factors, servants and assigns, to sue, labor and travel for, in and about the defense, safeguard and recovery of the said goods, and merchandise, or any part thereof, without prejudice to this insurance; nor shall the acts of the Insured or the Company, in recovering, saving and preserving the property insured, in case of disaster, be considered a waiver or an acceptance of an abandonment; and to the charges whereof, the said Company will contribute according to the rate and quantity of the sum hereby insured.

7.    General Average and Salvage Charges payable according to United States Laws and usage and/or as per Foreign Statement and/or as per York-Antwerp Rules (as prescribed in whole or in part) if in accordance with the contract of affreightment.

8.    It is agreed that the reports of shipments made under the policy against marine risks mentioned above shall be deemed to be reports under this policy also, and the Insured agrees to pay premiums on all shipments insured under this policy at the war risk rates of the Company as fixed from time to time.

9.    No claim shall be payable hereunder which arises from collision, contact with any fixed or floating object (other than a mine or torpedo), stranding, heavy weather or fire unless caused directly (and independently of the nature of the voyage or service which the vessel concerned or, in the case of collision, any other vessel involved therein, is performing) by a hostile act by or against a belligerent power; and for the purpose of this paragraph “power” includes any authority maintaining Naval, Military or Air Forces in association with a power.

10.    No recovery for a constructive total loss shall be had hereunder unless the property insured is reasonably abandoned on account of its actual total loss appearing to be unavoidable, or because it cannot be preserved from actual total loss without an expenditure which would exceed its value if the expenditure had been incurred.

11.    It is agreed that this policy is a separate and wholly independent contract and is not subject to any terms or conditions of the policy against marine risks above mentioned (whether physically attached thereto or not) except as such terms or conditions shall have been expressly incorporated herein by reference.

12.    This insurance may be cancelled by either party upon forty-eight (48) hours written or telegraphic notice to the other party, but such cancellation shall not affect any shipment on which this insurance has attached under the terms of Clause 4 hereof prior to the effective date of such notice. Shipments on which this insurance has not so attached but for which, prior to the effective date of such notice, bills of lading have been issued and (in the case of exports) Certificates or special policies have been issued and negotiated shall be covered from the time of loading on the overseas vessel, as provided in Clause 4, at the rates of the Company, provided that, prior to said effective date, such shipments were at the risk of the Insured and were covered under the said policy against marine risks.

In the event of loss which may give rise to a claim under this policy, prompt notice shall be given to this Company.
