XLII Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting
The IOPC Funds have been invited to participate in the next Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting (ATCM XLII) in Prague, Czech Republic. The IOPC Funds will be invited to contribute to discussions on the implementation of Annex VI to the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty: ‘Liability Arising From Environmental Emergencies’.
National workshop on the international liability and compensation regime
In cooperation with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the Central American Commission for Maritime Transport (COCATRAM), the IOPC Funds will deliver a national workshop on the international liability and compensation regime in Costa Rica from 16-18 July 2019. The workshop will cover the legal framework behind the regime as well as the IOPC Funds' Claims Manual and admissibility criteria. Participants will also undertake an exercise to enable them to apply the claims criteria to a theoretical incident. In addition to the 1992 Civil Liability and Fund Conventions, presentations on the other IMO Liability Conventions will also be delivered.
Meetings of the IOPC Funds' governing bodies
Regular sessions of the IOPC Funds will take place during the week of 28 October 2019. Circulars containing the invitation and provisional agenda will be issued nearer the time. Further information can be found here.
