Decision ID: 001157

In July 2000 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee noted that although the Al Jaziah 1 had been designed as an inland waters motor tankship, it was generally considered that a craft fell within the concept of ‘seagoing ship or other seaborne craft’ if it was actually operating at sea. The Committee therefore took the view that the Al Jaziah 1 fell within the definitions of ‘ship’ laid down in the 1969 Civil Liability Convention and the 1992 Civil Liability Convention.
