New joint publication on liability and compensation

Wednesday, 1st December 2021

The International Group of P&I Clubs, the IOPC Funds and ITOPF have collaborated on a new booklet on liability and compensation for ship-source oil pollution in the marine environment. This 35-page document provides an overview of the international and selected national arrangements in place, as well as background information on ‘who pays’. It was produced with support from IMO, the Canadian Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund and the US National Pollution Funds Center.

The new publication is based on the collaborators’ experience of applying the provisions of the compensation regimes to incidents around the world, and the assessment of associated claims for compensation. The importance of a close relationship between those claiming compensation, those paying compensation, and technical advisers - who all work together closely during the claims process – is highlighted throughout with case studies.
