In October 2005 the 1992 Fund Assembly considered the impact of changes to the IMO Codes and Conventions on which the definition of hazardous and noxious substances (HNS) in the International Convention on liability and compensation for damage in connection with the carriage of hazardous and noxious substances by sea (HNS Convention) was based.
