New Guidelines for presenting claims for environmental damage
The new Guidelines for presenting claims for environmental damage, approved by the 1992 Fund and Supplementary Fund Assemblies at their October 2017 sessions, are now available via the publications section of the website. These Guidelines set out what should be done following an oil spill to present claims for environmental damage covered by the international liability and compensation regime, that is, the reimbursement of costs for post-spill studies and for reinstatement of environments damaged by oil. These latest Guidelines are for inclusion within the Claims Information Pack which is available to download from the Publications page. Hard copies are available on request.
