This booklet includes a sample copy of the REPAIRCON and MINREPCON2018 contracts and the related explanatory notes. REPAIRCON is the standard contract for use in connection with major ship repairs, in a wet or dry dock, at a shipyard or in a similar facility. The explanatory notes provide some background information on the clauses of the BIMCO contracts.
In contrast to REPAIRCON, which is the standard agreement for major ship repair works, MINREPCON is the recommended contract for minor works or maintenance. MINREPCON will typically be used for arrangements with a local plumber, electrician or carpenter to attend on board when a vessel is at berth or anchorage.
BIMCO is the world’s largest direct-membership organisation for shipowners, charterers, shipbrokers and agents. In total, around 60% of the world’s merchant fleet is a BIMCO member, measured by tonnage (weight of the unloaded ships).
The organisation has NGO status and is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, with offices in Athens, Singapore and Shanghai.
With around 1,900 member companies across 120 countries, from the largest shipowners in the world to small local port agents and law firms, BIMCO represents a wide range of maritime companies and organisations.
BIMCO’s goal is to secure a level playing field for the global shipping industry. BIMCO therefore works to promote and secure global standards and regulations for the maritime sector. The organisation’s century long effort into creating standard contracts and clauses is an expression of that aim.
