New Publication – Guidance for Member States
A new publication ‘Guidance for Member States – Consideration of the definition of ‘ship’ is now available to download from the publications page. It reflects decisions taken by 1992 Fund Member States in October 2015, following the recommendations of a 1992 Fund Working Group established to consider the issue of the definition of ‘ship’ under Article I(1) of the 1992 Civil Liability Convention. The resulting document provides a general guide to the definition of ‘ship’ and may assist in determining whether compensation should, in principle, be paid following an oil spill incident.
Hard copies of the Guidance document are available on request via the publications page
