The second session in the IOPC Funds’ webinar series “Understanding the Conventions – What should be included in your domestic legislation?” is scheduled to take place on 4 December 2023. Following the format of the entire series, this event will consist of a short 15‐minute presentation, followed by 15 minutes of questions.
The webinar series, which is being delivered initially in English only, is open to any interested party and participants can opt to attend either the full series or only those webinars of particular interest to them. Divided into four modules the full programme (available here) consists of a total of 11 webinars covering everything from the basic understanding of the Conventions, to the financing of the system, the types of claims that arise from tanker incidents and the claims submission process.
This particular session will explain the critical significance of effectively implementing the relevant Conventions into the national law of Member States. It will explore the key elements that should be included to secure the protection of potential future claimants. To accommodate participants from different time zones, this session will be conducted at two separate times.
