Decision ID: 002590

In October 1997 the 1971 Fund Assembly, noting the offer made by the shipowner and his insurer to contribute to a global settlement of all issues arising out of the Haven incident, authorised the Executive Committee to determine, at its 57th session, whether the conditions for the global settlement laid down by the Assembly had been fulfilled, and if so, to approve it. It was agreed that if this issue could not be decided at that session, the matter would be referred to the Assembly at its 4th extraordinary session, to be held in April 1998. The Assembly decided that the mandate of the Consultation Group, established by the Executive Committee at its 42nd session, should be extended up to the next session of the Assembly.
