Decision ID: 002832

In April 2002 the 1992 Fund Assembly noted the proposal by the Commission of the European Communities for a Directive on Environmental Liability, which would be considered by the European Parliament and Council, and was still subject to change. It was also noted that the Directive as proposed would not apply to environmental damage arising from an incident in respect of which liability or compensation was regulated by the 1992 Civil Liability Convention and the 1992 Fund Convention. The Assembly renewed its instruction to the Director to make such representations on behalf of the 1992 Fund to the European Commission as he deemed necessary in connection with the ongoing process within the European Union.
