How, and where, should general average be declared?

In compliance with local law and custom, before delivery of cargo to receivers at the destination port (not an intermediate port of refuge), and after a general average act. The average adjuster will usually advise on procedure in the country concerned. In many cases the declaration will be no more than the ship-owners announcement to cargo owners of his decision to collect general average contributions from them, but in some countries the procedure is more formal, and may involve lawyers and a court.
