A new tool has been developed to assist in the understanding and promotion of the International Convention on Liability and Compensation for Damage in Connection with the Carriage of Hazardous and Noxious Substances by Sea, 2010 (2010 HNS Convention). The HNS Incident Scenarios presentation has been developed by IMO, the IOPC Funds and the International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation (ITOPF) in close consultation with the International Group of Protection and Indemnity Associations (P&I Clubs) and is complementary to the brochure “The HNS Convention: Why it is Needed”.
The presentation is intended to be a further resource and information tool for authorities in IMO Member States as well as for the industry stakeholders to highlight the risk of HNS incidents and make ratification of the Convention a priority.
