In February 2000 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee, noting that the Erika was registered in Malta (which at the time of the incident was a Party to the 1969 Civil Liability and 1971 Fund Conventions) and that France was at the time a Party to the 1992 Civil Liability and 1992 Fund Conventions, having denounced the 1969 Civil Liability and 1971 Fund Conventions with effect from 15 May 1998, agreed that since there were no treaty relationships between France and Malta, only the 1992 Conventions were applicable to the incident.
