The IOPC Funds was invited by the International Maritime Law Institute (IMLI) in Malta to give an online lecture as part of IMLI’s distinguished Visiting Fellows Programme.
On 12 March 2021, Claims Manager, Mark Homan, presented on the fundamental aspects of the legal framework of the international liability and compensation regime for oil spills from tankers established under the 1992 Civil Liability and Fund Conventions. He also gave an overview of the 2010 HNS Convention and the progress made towards its entry into force.
The presentation concluded by covering some of the legal challenges faced by the IOPC Funds and the steps it has taken to ensure the regime remains robust and that the Conventions are implemented consistently.
The Secretariat is always pleased to see the active and positive participation of the students attending such presentations and looks forward to continuing to provide support to IMLI in the future.
