Tankers are charged by SIGCo based on voyages to the US Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The EEZ incorporates the USA, Puerto Rico, Guam, US Virgin Islands, American Samoa and the Northern Marianas.
SIGCo defines a Voyage as:
The entry into the US EEZ for a period of up to 30 days. The voyage will terminate on the earlier of expiry of the 30 day period or departure from the EEZ. On expiry of the 30 day period, in the event that the vessel is still in the US EEZ, a new voyage will be deemed to commence. The number of ports visited within the 30 day period is not pertinent for the purposes of this definition.
SIGCo charges up to 10 voyages on the above basis each policy year. SIGCo will adjust and invoice voyages for tankers based on its own records of port calls by vessels it guaranties. Members that prefer to provide their own information should use the online declaration system in this section or download the document and return it to SIGCo completed. The SIGCo voyage declaration system requires input of each call to port made by either a single vessel or fleet of vessels. A voyage can consist of one or more calls to a port, or offshore location. The resulting declaration will be sent to SIGCo and copied to the return email address. SIGCo will then invoice for voyages performed using the information submitted, as it applies to the definition above.
