Web Alert: Philippines Nickel Ore - 14 mining firms still operating despite suspension order

13 October 2017

Further to our previous web alert, the club’s correspondents in the Philippines (Claims Services P&I Management Co Inc) have issued the attached circular advising that 14 mining firms are still operating despite the suspension order earlier this year by the Philippines Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

Members with ships fixed to load mineral ore cargo from the Philippines are recommended to liaise closely with the club’s local correspondent and clarify the export ban with the relevant government agency prior to confirming the voyage, in order to ensure that the cargo is being legally exported and to avoid any issues.
