Regional Interactive Workshop on IMO Liability Conventions held in Egypt
IMO says its workshop in Egypt is supporting countries in the Arab region to implement and enforce treaties dealing with liability and compensation. The workshop, taking place in Alexandria (13-16 March), is providing a comprehensive overview of the IMO liability regime, including treaties covering wreck removal, salvage, carriage of hazardous and noxious substances, passengers, CLC, Fund and Bunkers Convention.
The history of the treaties’ development, their principles, implementation and practical implications are all being covered, with a view to supporting officials to implement and enforce the full liability regime in States in the region.
IMO is represented at the Regional Interactive Workshop on IMO Liability Conventions by Jan de Boer and Amr Hussein, who are joined by Chiara Della Mea (IOPC Funds) and Tjorborn Claesson (IG of P&I Clubs). The event is being organised under the IMO Integrated Technical Cooperation Programme (ITCP) for the Arab/Mediterranean region and within the framework of the MoU between IMO, the Ministry of Transport of Egypt and the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT).
