Rule 27 Carriage of Radioactive Materials


  1. The coverage granted to the Member by the Association shall not insure the Member against any loss, damage, liability, expenses or costs arising directly or indirectly out of or in consequence of the emission of ionizing radiation from, or the toxic, explosive or other hazardous properties of nuclear fuels or radioactive products or waste carried in an entered ship; nor shall the coverage granted extend to the direct or indirect consequences of such substances being on board an entered ship.
  2. Subject to all the rules expect General Rule 27.1, the coverage granted shall however extend to the carriage only of pure radio-isotopes which are used or are intended to be use for any agricultural, medical or scientific purposes. It is a condition precedent of such cover that all such material is listed in the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (“IMDG”) and that such material is carried in full compliance with all the requirements of the IMDG Code and all the requirements of the International Maritime Organisation.
  3. The Directors may in their discretion, by Regulation extend or reduce the coverage given by General Rule 27.2 to such further materials as they may in writing approve. The Managers may, in their discretion, extend the coverage given by General Rule 27.2 to individual consignments on such terms as they think fit.
