Incorrect vaccination certificates
A ship manager who was also providing crew to a ship arranged for the vaccination certificates to be issued to the crew. The manager did not realise that some of these vaccination certificates had been slightly altered when the Medical Examiner had spelt the name of the crew member incorrectly. These slight amendments to the vaccination certificates led to a ship being detained in Brazil for a considerable length of time, and a claim was then made by the owner against the manager for the delay. We settled this claim for USD 97,000.
