THE PROPOSED IMCO CONVENTION ON LIABILITY AND COMPENSATION IN CONNECTION WITH THE CARRIAGE OF NOXIOUS AND HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES BY SEA

In order to consider the subject of liability in any detail, one has to look at the relevant history of recent years. That history is of the development of unprecedented voluntary and legal arrangements for the compensation of Governments and other "persons" harmed by oil pollution, and widespread discussions of the possibility of extending those arrangements to include pollution by other cargoes. The "oil" arrangements have to be looked at first in order to understand the possible "HPS" (Hazardous Polluting Substances) arrangements. This paper is therefore divided into sections. (1) The "TORREY CANYON" and its effects. (2) The 1969 Oil Civil Liability Convention. (3) The 1969 Intervention Convention. (4) The Fund Convention. (5) TOVALO. (6) CRISTAL. (7) MARPOL 73 and pollutants other than oil. (8) Compensation for HPS Pollution.
