Decision ID: 000160

In October 1986 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee decided that operations could be considered as preventive measures, as defined in the Civil Liability Convention, only if the primary purpose was to prevent pollution damage. The Committee also decided that claims for compensation for such preventive measures should be asessed on the basis of costs (including a reasonable element of profit) and not on the basis of salvage awards.
