Of course, non-piracy agreements can also have an impact on the agency to which a producer adheres, not just the agency that leaves a producer. Usually, the first thing that happens when agents try to take a side step is that they dust off the old non-piracy agreement that they barely remember years ago. Before an agency accepts a new cross-transfer, it is important that an existing agreement be reviewed by an experienced lawyer in this area. The lawyer will be able to explain the scope of the agreement and even give the new agency a good idea of its applicability. In these circumstances, the appropriate method to protect the Agency`s customer relations is to establish an enforceable competition or non-piracy agreement. Even in the context of the sale of an agency or its assets, there is no effective transfer of the “ownership” of customer relations. The creation of an insurance agency is to create a book for companies. The value of the agency depends not only on the size of the company`s book, but also on its stability. The best time to think about protecting the Agency`s most valuable assets is to hire a new producer. It makes more sense to negotiate reasonable non-piracy agreements at the forefront of the relationship. It is much more difficult to impose safeguards when a manufacturer is angry or has decided to leave the Agency. Participating States agreed to cooperate, with the support of IMO and other stakeholders, to build national and regional capabilities to address broader maritime security issues as the basis for sustainable development of the maritime sector. The Jeddah Amendment recognises the important role of the “blue economy”, including maritime, maritime, fishing and tourism, in promoting sustainable economic growth, food security, employment, prosperity and stability.
However, it expresses deep concern about piracy, armed robbery of ships and other illegal maritime activities, including fishing-related crime, in the Western Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden. Such acts pose a serious threat to the safety of people and ships at sea and to the protection of the marine environment. We believe that any new worker should sign both agreements as a condition of employment.
