Description/Abstract

In Global Process Systems Inc v Syarikat Takaful Malaysia Berhad ('The Cendor MOPU') [2011] UKSC 5, the Supreme Court dealt with the interpretation of the 'inherent vice' exclusion and in so doing widened the scope of the concept of 'perils of the sea'. The court held that the exclusion would not apply where the result of weather and sea conditions - albeit they are foreseeable and ordinary - are fortuitous.
