The IOPC Funds has continued to work with the Regional Organization for the Conservation of the Environment of the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden (PERSGA) to produce the Claims Information Pack in Arabic. Having previously published both the Text of Conventions and the Claims Manual, the Guidelines for presenting claims in the fisheries, mariculture and fish processing sector and the Guidelines for presenting claims in the tourism sector have also now been translated by PERSGA, reviewed by the IOPC Funds and made available under the 'Other Publications' page of the Funds' website.

Publications are usually produced in the official working languages of the IOPC Funds, namely English, French and Spanish. However, as in the case above, from time to time the Secretariat collaborates with Member States and other organisations to produce key publications in other languages. This assists the IOPC Funds in its endeavours to engage with more States, particularly in relation to the implementation of the Conventions and also in relation to raising States' and potential claimants' awareness of the international liability and compensation regime and claims processes.
