Decisión nº: 000717

In February 1997 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee decided that the 1971 Fund should continue to examine each claim relating to salvage operations and similar activities on its own merits against the ‘primary purpose test’ and the ‘dual purpose test’ as appropriate. It was confirmed that the test of reasonableness should apply not only to the actions of the shipowner in contracting the salvor but also to the measures carried out under the terms of the relevant contract, ie that the approach should be the same as in respect of clean-up operations.
