Decision ID: 000017

In October 1995 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee noted that included in the claims notified to the Court of Fujairah, but not yet submitted to the shipowner’s insurer, was a claim for alleged damage to the environment for £10 million. The Committee referred to the Fund’s policy, which had been laid down by the Assembly, namely that damage to the environment per se was not admissible whereas reasonable costs for reinstatement actually incurred or to be incurred qualified for compensation.
