This month’s SEA Watch’s starts off with a quick look at the 2007 Wreck Removal Convention which will come into force on 14 April 2015. Will it change the world? Unlikely. However, along with improving certainty and uniformity in maritime law, it will almost certainly increase the risk exposure of ship owners and their P&I insurers and our first article tells you why. We’ve also asked an interesting question that hinges on the working interrelationship between the Wreck Removal Convention and the 1976 Liability Convention. Esoteric legal stuff? Not at all and actually a practical and fundamental issue. We wonder if anyone has the answer?
