What does Free of Particular Average (FPA) refer to?

Free of Particular Average (FPA) is a clause in a marine insurance policy that specifies that the insurer is not responsible for covering losses or damages to the cargo that are caused by partial losses, such as breakage, leakage, or pilferage, unless the loss exceeds a certain percentage of the total insured value. This clause is typically used in policies that cover goods that are shipped in bulk or that have a low unit value.
