WIFPON (Whether In Free Pratique Or Not)

WIFPON (Whether In Free Pratique Or Not). In a berth charter, notice of readiness can be tendered even if the ship has not arrived in the destination berth, which may be unavailable.

 

The vessel would normally have to be given permission (“pratique”) by the port health authorities before it can be “legally ready” and this may influence the commencement of laytime. With a WIFPON qualification to the tendering of notice of readiness, the formalities of health clearance may not affect the commencement of laytime.
