The industry body formed in 2011 aims to eradicate corruption at all levels within the shipping industry and boasts over 100 members, including major shipowners such as tanker titan Frontline.
“We’re proud to be the first P&I Club to have been accepted as a member of MACN,” said Andrew Cutler, ceo of Britannia’s managers Tindall Riley.
“Britannia is often called for support whenever a Member resists unlawful demands and the liberty of the ship or crew is threatened. In this context, P&I Clubs play a vital role when their members stand up to corrupt demands.”
The MACN has seen success in tackling corruption through country-specific actions in locations such as Nigeria, Indonesia, Egypt, and Argentina.
“Britannia’s recognition of the problem, and their support for MACN, is an important step in our industry showing a united front against corrupt practices,” said MACN director, Cecilia Müller Torbrand.
