On 25 July 2019 the Director, José Maura, attended a special session of the Assembly of the International Seabed Authority (ISA) in Kingston, Jamaica, which was held to mark the 25th anniversary of the entry into force of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and the establishment of the ISA. He also took part in a reception hosted by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade of Jamaica on the same day.

At ISA’s request, the IOPC Funds have been regularly engaging with the ISA’s Secretariat to share the Funds’ experience in managing an international compensation fund as well as on the functioning of the marine pollution liability regime.
