The General Conditions of the Nordic Association of Freight Forwarders are generally used within the Nordic countries (ie, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland) to regulate the rights and obligations of parties to a freight contract. The current edition of this standard agreement took effect on June 1 1998. The conditions are widely used throughout the shipping industry.
The general Conditions are undergoing revision but the workings are still secret and unpublished. The initiative was taken by the Nordic Association of Freight Forwarders, and the work is being done by a group of lawyers representing the professional industrial organisations for carriers in their respective countries. In Sweden, that work is being overseen by the Swedish International Freight Association.
The goal is to have a revised version of the Conditions at hand by Summer 2012.
