Decision ID: 001374

In July 2002 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee noted that the Director intended to inform individually during September 2002 all those who had submitted claims and with whom settlements had not been reached by that time about the provisions in the 1992 Conventions on time bar. The Committee also noted that since there might be uncertainty as to the date on which the three-year time bar period started to run for the individual claimant (ie the day when the respective claimant’s loss occurred), the Director intended to suggest that the claimants should assume that the time bar period commenced on the day of the incident (ie 12 December 1999) in order to avoid any risk of the claims becoming time-barred.
