Decision ID: 002710

In October 1999 the 1992 Fund Assembly instructed the Director to study the question as to whether, in situations where claimants had not been paid compensation from the shipowner/insurer (even though the total amount of compensation claimed was less than the shipowner’s limit) there might be a possibility under the 1992 Conventions that claimants could receive compensation from the 1992 Fund, which could then present a subrogated claim to the shipowner/insurer.
