Decision ID: 003303

In October 2000 the 1992 Fund Assebly took note of the comments presented by the Director on behalf of the 1992 Fund, as instructed by the Assembly, to the European Commission on the Commission’s White Paper on Environmental Liability, drawing the Commission’s attention to the international compensation regime established by the 1992 Civil Liability Convention and the 1992 Fund Convention. The Assembly noted in particular the observation made by the Director in his comments that the Commission should take fully into consideration the existing global regime based on the 1992 Conventions and that any action by the Commission should not hamper the functioning of that regime.
