On 11 May 2023, the IOPC Funds were delighted to welcome 30 postgraduate students studying Port and Maritime Business Management as part of the Maritime Law Masters programme from the University of Deusto, Spain.
The Deputy Director/Head of the Claims Department, Liliana Monsalve, provided an overview of the international liability and compensation regime, focusing on the essential components of the 1992 Civil Liability and Fund Conventions. She explained the types of claims that could be admissible under the Conventions as well as the procedures and deadline for filing a claim.
This visit was organised as part of our ongoing collaboration between Deusto University and the Secretariat. The IOPC Funds is always pleased to provide university students and educational institutions with an opportunity to learn about the organisation’s work and to gain an insight into the international legal framework related to oil pollution compensation.
