A Running Agreement may be for a maximum of 6 months for a vessel engaged in frequent short voyages, e. g. a ferry, unless the vessel has a small crew and a low staff turnover, in which case the agreement may be extended to 12 months.
Any other Running Agreement may be for 12 months. A Voyage Agreement may have a duration of up to 24 months. These periods are subject to any additional period provided for in associated notice clauses. The geographical limitations of a voyage clause should be clearly stated when the clause is completed and used. Subject to these limitations, the duration in a Voyage Clause is open for agreement between the parties in a fixed-term crew agreement.
