In respect of transport covered by the CMNI Convention, Danser Group as the carrier is not liable for damage or losses arising from:

a. an act or omission by the master of the vessel, the pilot or any other person in the service of the vessel, pusher or tower during navigation or in the formation or dissolution of a pushed or towed convoy, provided that the carrier complied with the obligations set out for the crew in article 3, paragraph 3, unless the act or omission results from an intention to cause the damage or from reckless conduct with the knowledge that such damage would probably result;

b. fire or an explosion on board the vessel, where it is not possible to prove that the fire or explosion resulted from a fault of the carrier or the actual carrier of their servants or agents or a defect of the vessel.

c. the defects existing prior to the voyage of his vessel or of a rented or chartered vessel if he can prove that such defects could not have been detected prior to the start of the voyage despite due diligence.
