Decision ID: 003773

In October 2010, the 1992 Fund Administrative Council decided that the Secretariat should, at the next session of the 1992 Fund Assembly, provide a legal analysis of the extent to which the interpretation of the definition of ‘ship’ within Article 1.1 of the 1992 Civil Liability Convention, might include FSUs.  Following an inconclusive debate in respect of whether oil carried on board ‘mother’ vessels should be considered received for the purpose of Article 10.1(a) of the 1992 Fund Convention as regards levying contributions, it was decided that the Director should add this issue to the legal study on the definition of ‘ship’, and report back to the 1992 Fund Assembly at its next session.
