At the invitation of the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs, the IOPC Funds participated in a regional workshop on the international liability and compensation regime for ship-source oil pollution incidents from 13-14 November 2018 in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.
The workshop was led by the Director of the IOPC Funds, Mr José Maura, and the Head of Claims Department, Ms Liliana Monsalve, jointly with a representative of the International Group of P&I Associations. The first day included presentations on the legal framework of the international liability and compensation regime and the second day focussed on the admissibility criteria for claims under the applicable Conventions and on the handling of claims in general.
Around 40 participants from various government agencies, as well as the shipping industry, took an active part in the workshop.
Mr Maura and Ms Monsalve also took the opportunity to hold meetings with the Government of the Sultanate of Oman to discuss the Nesa R3 incident and to review the claims situation in order to accelerate the assessment process.
