1. General average shall be adjusted as regards both loss and contribution upon the basis of values at the time and place when and where the adventure ends.
2. This rule shall not affect the determination of the place at which the average statement is to be made up.
3. When a ship is at any port or place in circumstances which would give rise to an allowance in general average under the provisions of Rules X and XI, and the cargo or part thereof is forwarded to destination by other means, rights and liabilities in general average shall, subject to cargo interests being notified if practicable, remain as nearly as possible the same as they would have been in the absence of such forwarding, as if the adventure had continued in the original ship for so long as justifiable under the contract of affreightment and the applicable law.
4. The proportion attaching to cargo of the allowances made in general average by reason of applying the third paragraph of this Rule shall not exceed the cost which would have been borne by the owners of cargo if the cargo had been forwarded at their expense. This limit shall not apply to any allowances made under Rule F.
When introduced in 1924, Rule G comprised only the first two paragraphs set out above. The second two paragraphs (the “Non-Separation Clauses”) were added in 1994.
