Decision ID: 000621

In June 1996 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee decided that, since measures taken by the Finnish authorities within the territorial waters of Estonia (a non-Member State) were taken to prevent or minimise pollution damage within the territory or territorial sea of Finland (a 1971 Fund Member State), the measures in principle fell within the scope of application of the Civil Liability and Fund Conventions.
