Tiejha Smyth, Deputy Director at North P&I Club’s FD&D Department attempts to shed light on the possible impact of the 2020 sulphur cap on contracts and charterparties. Ms. Smyth advises operators to consider matters such as bunker quality clauses, performance guarantees and fines for non-compliance early, in order to avoid future problems.

She joined UK law firm, Ward Hadaway, in 2002 and qualified as a solicitor in 2004, specialising in commercial litigation and dealing with High Court proceedings and Alternative Dispute Resolution. She joined North’s FD&D Department in November 2008 and primarily assists North’s European and UK Members with FD&D matters, and regularly delivers presentations and training on a range of FD&D subjects.
