The Nautical Institute 50th Anniversary conference
The conference will explore four principal areas: Criminalisation, Environment, Technology and Digitisation and The Role of the Seafarer and will be seeking answers to the following questions...
- Why do countries persist in criminalising seafarers?
- Why are seafarers arrested for events outside their control?
- How are environmental regulations likely to develop over the next 25 years?
- How can seafarers keep up with the IMO’s regulations but also those of national and local bodies?
- How can seafarers keep up with fast changing technology?
- How can conflicts between ships with a high degree of autonomy and those with little or none be managed?
- Do seafarers require better protection for abandonment and detention onboard?
- What can be done about these and many other issues?
Mike Yarwood will be Speaking on Criminalization in shipping at 14:45pm BST.

Technological advances in digitalisation of process, telematics and smart containers provide opportunities to mitigate risk for the temperature controlled supply chain. However, much still relies on human intervention – and that is the aspect that TT’s claims experience suggests continues to produce losses.
TT Talk - Port and terminal security
Security is key for container terminals and ports generally. The threat horizon is vast, incorporating cargo theft, illicit trades, alongside operational safety and the prevention of terrorist attacks. Inevitably, account is needed of both land and water interfaces.
TT Club is increasing its efforts to promote industry awareness of both trends in criminal activity and methods of combatting its success.
