Decision ID: 001437

In February 2003 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee noted that the shipowner’s insurer and the 1992 Fund had established a Claims Office in La Coruña, Spain, which became operational on 20 December 2002 and that consideration was being given to setting up a Claims Office in Bordeaux, France. A number of delegations voiced their concerns regarding the intrusion of the Office in La Coruña in December 2002 and appealed to the authorities in the hope that such an occurrence would not be repeated. The Committee repeated its previous authorisation to the Director to close any Claims Office if he felt that the safety of the staff was threatened.
