Decision ID: 001206

In January 2001 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee decided that the Dolly, although originally built as a general cargo vessel, had been adapted for the carriage of oil in bulk as cargo and that it therefore fell within the definition of ‘ship’ as laid down in the 1992 Civil Liability Convention.
