Decision ID: 000504

In October 1995 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee, whilst noting that the Fund’s policy regarding the admissibility of claims relating to salvage and related activities had been to examine each case on its own merits, applying the primary or dual purpose tests as appropriate, instructed the Director to make an in-depth study of the issues involved and in particular the question as to whether, within the parameters of the applicable provisions of the Civil Liability Convention, it would be possible to find a solution that could be applied in all cases and would lead to an equitable result for all parties involved.
