FOSFA Arbitrator lists all disputes that are related to the breach of obligations by the parties to agreements on oil, seeds or fat supply, which contain the above FOSFA rules of arbitration and appeal. In particular, the Arbitration Tribunal settles disputes relating to the violation of delivery and procedural obligations, late payments, the inconformity of quantity and quality of goods delivered under the terms set out in the agreements, disputes over the devaluation and recovery procedure, and other cases in which one of the parties is late. Traders must understand all these laws and rules and, in particular, they must be fully familiar with their contracts. Also remember that, in the vast majority of the time, we are dealing with the food industry and that the large quantities of oils and fats produced in the world are destined for human consumption.
Today, food production involves risk management and this risk must be managed at all levels of the food chain, from farm to fork. One of the most critical areas at risk is the transport of petroleum and fat products by sea in bulk from producing countries to consumer countries. The main reason is that the oils in transit are not under the direct control of one of the commercial parties. For the duration of the trip, they are the responsibility of a third party, that is, the shipowner. During this link in the food chain, a vessel carrying food oil must comply with the legislation developed by the IMO. The advantage of global trade under FOSFA contracts is that the use of model contracts reduces the risk of misinterpretation or misunderstanding between trading partners.  In addition, these standard form contracts are familiar with trading partners and reflect long-established business practices in the sector. IT`S FOSFA.
