WOAC designates Strait of Hormuz as High-Risk Area

The agreement by the Warlike Operations Area Committee to temporarily designate the Strait of Hormuz as a High-Risk Area from August 2 following government advice to avoid the area unless accompanied by UK naval support recognises the risks to seafarers and gives them the option of leaving the vessel prior to a transit and gives them double pay if they choose to stay on board

The temporary agreement applies to all vessels entered into the UK Chamber and the clauses are invoked if flag state and industry guidance is not complied with
