What is a Running Agreement?

A crew agreement extending over two or more voyages.Β 

Running Agreements were originally intended for use in ships trading to foreign ports but making frequent returns to the UK, and were restricted to 6 months in duration. Nowadays, a 12-month Running Agreement may be used in most UK ships trading in the Unlimited Area, whether they return to the UK or not.
