Decision ID: 003757

In October 2010, the 1992 Fund Executive Committee noted that in a judgement rendered in September 2010, the Arbitration Court of Saint Petersburg and Leningrad Region had rejected the ‘Metodika’ claim which was made by the Federal service on the supervision in the sphere of the use of the nature (Rosprirodnadzor).  It was noted that in its judgement the Court had considered that, under Article I.6 of the 1992 Civil Liability Convention, compensation for damage to the environment, other than loss of profits caused by such damage, should be limited to the expenses for reasonable reinstatement measures, as well as the expenses for preventive measures and subsequent damage caused by such measures.  It was further noted that the Court had also considered that the expenses included in other claims arising from the incident covered any preventive and reinstatement measures actually taken as a result of the incident.
