The Pollution Damage Caused by Oil from Oil Tankers might have a serious impact on the nature. So the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has established in 1992 the following rules

  • the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage, 1992 (the 1992 Civil Liability Convention); and
  • the International Convention on the Establishment of an International Fund for Compensation for Oil Pollution Damage, 1992 (the 1992 Fund Convention).
