The north sea operators' Claims Conference - NSOCC - is an annual forum for discussing matters of common interest to North Sea, Baltic and Irish Sea operators.

Since 1976, we have met annually with the aim of sharing knowledge and experience and we pride ourselves with the interaction between the delegates as a very important social element of the conference. However, the COVID-19 Pandemi restrictions and requirements resulted in a postponed Conference in both 2020 and 2021.

The 44th Session is taking place on October 10 to 12, 2022 in Norway on board MS Color Magic Oslo-Kiel-Oslo hosted-sponsored by Color Line Marine AS (Sandefjord) and Sartori & Berger (as agents for Color Line GmbH, Kiel). Most of the Delegates attending will meet at Hotel Bristol Oslo already in the evening of October 9.



The 43rd Session Ipswich (UK) October 7 to 8, 2019 was hosted by Birketts PLC and chaired by newly elected Chairman Rune Dybedal - NORTH (Newcastle). Thomas Miller Claims also sponsored.



About the NSOCC

Since 1976, we have met annually with the aim of sharing knowledge and experience and developing best practice across areas, such as claims management, standard trading conditions, bills of lading terms and the handling of hazardous goods.

Each year the conference is kindly hosted by a NSOCC member in their home country, with recent conferences taking place in Ipswich, Helsinki, Oslo, Antwerp, Chatham, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Durham, Rotterdam, Hamburg and Palanga, and we always aim to keep the cost for attending this 'not for profit' conference affordable.
