ProtectionMain cases in which insurance premiums are paid


The international cargo marine insurance provided by our company uses the Association Cargo Conditions (ICC (2009)) established in 2009 as standard conditions and complies with the conditions of ICC(C). The main damages and accidents covered by compensation are shown in the table below. In the event of a loss, English law will apply to the liability for payment of insurance claims and the procedures for settlement thereof.

✔ Payment is applicable.

✘ Not eligible for payment.

Protectionperiod andwarRisk of war/strike


The period during which the insurance company is responsible is called the insurance period. The insurance period for oceangoing cargo marine insurance begins when the cargo is first moved for the purpose of transportation from a warehouse or other storage location at the place of origin specified in the insurance policy to the final warehouse at the destination specified in the insurance policy.It is supposed to end when unloading is completed at other storage locations. This means that the insurance period begins when the cargo moves from the warehouse or storage location where it was submitted for insurance to the insurance company to the warehouse or storage location where it actually begins transportation, and when the cargo is transported to its final destination. The insurance period ends when the cargo arrives and is unloaded.

Please note that insurance will terminate for the following three items even during transportation.

  1. unloaded at a warehouse for storage other than in the normal course of transportation or for the allocation or distribution of cargo.

  2. If a transport vehicle or other transport device or container is used for storage other than in the normal course of transport.

  3. When 60 days have passed since the cargo was unloaded from the ship.

Unlike the above, in principle, war risks are not compensated while the cargo is on land, but from the time the cargo is loaded onto the ship to the time it is unloaded (or from 12:00 p.m. on the day the ship arrives at the final port of discharge). The insurance period is until 15 days have passed (whichever comes first).

Where any war risks coverage is provided by underwriters, this(re)insurance excludes loss damage liability or expense arising from the outbreak of war (whether there be a declaration of war or not) between any of the following: United Kingdom, United States of America, France, the Russian 
Federation, the People's Republic of China.
