Decision ID: 000126

In October 1988 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee noted with satisfaction that an out-of-court settlement had been reached in respect of the claim by Esso Italiana Spa, which excluded any payment for items relating to salvage, which was in conformity with the Committee’s position, i.e. that such operations could be considered as falling within the definition of “preventive measures ” only if the primary purpose of the operations was to prevent pollution damage and that in the Fund’s view the operations in question did not fulfill that condistion..
