    This publication guides mariners on collecting, preserving and reporting on various types of factual evidence relevant to incidents and accidents on board ship. All evidence types are contextualised through incidents involving people, cargo, hull and machinery, commercial disputes, pollution and the ship itself. Chapters are supplemented by procedural checklists relevant to the evidence required.

     

    This publication equips readers with the knowledge necessary to demonstrate a ship’s compliance, improve shipboard operations and determine liability when pursuing or defending a claim. Evidence checklists cover areas such as personal illness and performance warranty disputes, meaning crew are prepared for various eventualities. Detail is given on digital evidence types, explaining the practical use of electronic devices such as ECDIS and mobile phones. The publication guides readers on good reporting practice and time management, so that all evidence can be handled sensitively and without delay.
