No arbitration in DIS dispute – the case goes to court

According to the ship officers of the Danish Maritime Officers, the Danish Shipowners’ Association has refused a professional arbitration in the tax dispute concerning the Danish International Ship Register, DIS. Now, two member companies of the Danish Shipowners’ Association are being brought to trial, says attorney Pernille Sædam Marstal (photo), attorney with the Danish Maritime Officers.

The Danish Shipowners’ Association has refused to resolve the tax disagreement of DIS through a professional arbitration. As a result, the case will now go to court, starting with writs being filed against two members of the Shipowners’ Association, says the Danish Maritime Officers, which represents approximately 3,200 ship officers.

The attempts at solving the matter of net wage regulations in DIS by reaching an agreement were unsuccessful, says the Danish Maritime Officers following the Danish Shipowners’ Association’s reply to the writ presented to them two weeks ago by the Danish Maritime Officers.
