Bunker Dispute Resolution Survey
A bunker dispute resolution survey is a type of marine survey that is conducted to resolve disputes between parties over the quality and quantity of bunkers supplied to a vessel. The survey is typically conducted by an independent third-party surveyor who is appointed by both parties to investigate the dispute and provide a neutral assessment of the situation, protecting the interests of all parties involved.
The importance of a bunker dispute resolution survey lies in its ability to provide an objective and impartial assessment of the situation, which can help to resolve disputes quickly and fairly. The surveyor will typically investigate the following issues:
- Quantity of bunkers supplied: The surveyor will measure the quantity of bunkers supplied to the vessel, using industry-standard measurement techniques and equipment. This can help to determine whether the supplier has delivered the agreed quantity of bunkers.
- Quality of bunkers supplied: The surveyor will take samples of the bunkers supplied and conduct laboratory tests to determine their quality. This can help to identify whether the bunkers meet the contractual specifications and industry standards.
- Sampling procedures: The surveyor will investigate the sampling procedures used by the supplier and the vessel, to ensure that they are consistent with industry standards and regulations.
- Handling and storage procedures: The surveyor will investigate the handling and storage procedures used by the supplier and the vessel, to ensure that the bunkers were not contaminated or adulterated during transportation or storage.
- Documentation: The surveyor will review all relevant documentation, including the bunker delivery note, the vessel’s logbook, and any other relevant records, to ensure that the bunkers were supplied and used in accordance with the contractual agreement.
The results of the bunker dispute resolution survey can be used to resolve the dispute between the parties, by providing an independent and impartial assessment of the situation. This can help to avoid costly and time-consuming legal disputes, which can damage the reputation of the parties involved.
