Decision ID: 000031

In June 1991 the Working Group noted that the definition of the notion of ‘pollution damage’ in Article I.6 of the Civil Liability Convention had been amended in the 1984 Protocol by addition of the proviso to the effect that compensation for impairment of the environment, other than loss of profit from such impairment, should be limited to the costs of reasonable measures of reinstatement actually undertaken or to be undertaken. There was strong opposition to any further amendment, which constituted a codification of the definition in the 1969 and 1971 Conventions as developed by the 1971 Fund.
