1.4.2     Liability arising out of the delivery of cargo under a non-negotiable bill of lading, waybill or similar document without production of such document by the person to whom delivery is made where such production is required by the express terms of that document or the law to which that document, or the contract of carriage contained in or evidenced by it, is subject [Rule 19(17)(iii)(d)6]

1.8.1     coverage hereunder is limited to the extent that such liability thereby exceeds two thousand five hundred Dollars (USD 2,500) (or the equivalent in local currency) in respect of any such unit, piece, package or otherwise

1.11.1   coverage hereunder shall cease (and coverage in accordance with the Association’s Rules14 shall be deemed to reattach) as soon as the cargo is loaded on board the ship and/or conveyance.

1.12      Unrecoverable General Average Contributions

Cover is extended to include the cost to the Assured of that proportion of general average expenditure (including salvage) and special charges which should be paid by cargo or by some other party to the maritime adventure, but which are not so paid after the exhaustion of all legal remedies against such parties solely by reason of a breach of the contract of carriage that is covered under Clauses 1.1 to 1.7 above.

1.13.3   nothing in the coverage afforded hereunder shall be construed as aiding and abetting an illegal act or acts(s).  Coverage is subject to the implied warranty that the adventure insured is a lawful one and that so far as the Assured can control the matter the adventure shall be carried out in a lawful manner; the Association shall respond to the maximum extent permitted by law.
