BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Avoiding stowaway complications

Reprints

Under the U.K. Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, anyone responsible for transporting a clandestine entrant to the United Kingdom can be fined.

Shipping firms can avoid a fine if they can show that they were not aware that an entrant was concealed in their vehicle and that an effective system to prevent the carriage of clandestine entrants was in place, among other things. Among actions transporters can take to protect themselves, the U.K. Border Force advises that they watch their vehicle being loaded, padlock all doors and make certain there has been no tampering with security devices.
