U.S. Jurisdiction


The United States is a unique and complex jurisdiction with many special rules and procedures that can be difficult to navigate. With issues ranging from the Jones Act to U.S. Coast Guard requirements, from COGSA to Ballast Water Management and U.S. Sanctions, these topics can present unique challenges.

The Standard Club has decades of experience guiding our members through these often difficult and overlapping regulations. The club’s extensive network of lawyers and surveyors spread out across the United States provide a wealth of local knowledge and experience in handling     matters of all shapes and sizes. The Standard Club, through its website, circulars, bulletins and regular web alerts, also keep our members up to date on the latest developments in the jurisdiction.
