With the worldwide upsurge of lawsuits against classification societies, their liability towards third parties has become one of the most contentious issues in contemporary maritime law. Against this background, the authors analyze potential third-party claims and examine to what extent classification societies may limit their liability. The study highlights the development in Australian, English, French, New Zealand, U.S. and German law.

This book offers a comprehensive international law analysis of the European Uniona (TM)s maritime safety legislation. This is a relatively novel field of activity of the EU, but its development has been very rapid. Since 1993, over 40 acts of EU law have been adopted, dealing with a variety of subjects, such as port State control, classification societies, vessel traffic management, ship construction, environmental protection and pollution sanctions. This legislation is analysed from the point of international law, notably the law of the sea and the international maritime conventions. Regional legislation in a field that is traditionally regulated primarily by means of international conventions is bound to create tensions with the related international conventions and with well-established principles of international law. This study assesses how the EU has acted as a flag State, port State and coastal State and measures the trends in this development against the international legal framework. More detailed legal analyses are offered for specific aspects of EU legislation that are considered to be particularly interesting from an international law point of view. The relationship between EU law and international law within the internal EU legal system is also analysed from the specific perspective of maritime safety law.

Because the liability of ship owners is limited, classification societies have been considered as exempt from liability. This book analyses which actions of classification societies may give rise to claims and whether or not the societies can be held liable under English, German or American maritime law. In addition, it develops the fundamental aspects of an international convention on the limitation of the liability of classification societies.

Héritière des mouvements de territorialisation et de régionalisation de la gouvernance des espaces et des activités maritimes, l’Union européenne s’est érigée, malgré le silence des traités constitutionnels, en nouvel échelon d’élaboration du droit de la sécurité maritime. Les enjeux humains, économiques et environnementaux de la problématique ont fait de son ordre juridique un théâtre privilégié de la confrontation entre les traditions libérales du monde maritime et le besoin d’une régulation par la puissance publique en vue de prévenir, limiter et indemniser les préjudices de toutes natures pouvant résulter d’un accident en mer. Si elle se fait parfois au prix d’un alignement sur les pratiques internationales, l’harmonisation progressive du droit de la sécurité maritime à l’échelle continentale limite la compétition législative que les États membres sont susceptibles de se livrer dans l’exercice de l’autorité du pavillon et de l’autorité du port. Afin d’assurer l’effectivité de son action en la matière, l’Union européenne organise le rapprochement des administrations maritimes nationales, dont la coopération opérationnelle est orchestrée par des agences décentralisées. Pour dépasser les limites auxquelles se heurte nécessairement une approche continentale, l’Union européenne multiplie les partenariats internationaux et défend à présent une approche différenciée par bassin. La singularisation par rapport au droit international de référence demeure quant à elle stratégiquement limitée, alors que l’attractivité commerciale de l’Europe autoriserait une stratégie d’incitation économique plus audacieuse. Cet ouvrage dresse un bilan de l’action de l’Union européenne dans le domaine de la sécurité maritime. Il en identifie les fondements, les achèvements et les limites, et suggère quelques pistes pour l’avenir. Il se destine aussi bien aux chercheurs qu’aux acteurs publics et privés concernés par la sécurité maritime (administrations nationales et européennes, armateurs, sociétés de classification, assureurs et mutuelles d’indemnisation, chantiers navals, cabinets d’avocats, représentants d’intérêt et groupes d’influence, etc.).

Oil tankers are not solely to blame for pollution at sea. Non-tankers have released numerous spills. The International Convention on Civil Liability for Bunker Oil Pollution Damage has been adopted, but has not yet come into force. This timely and comprehensive book studies compulsory insurance, its main purpose of ensuring compensation and its interrelations with other features such as the rule of strict liability, the limitation of liability of that convention.

Designations of large Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas (PSSAs) triggered a controversial debate within the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) concerning the legal basis of PSSAs, the relationship between the IMO’s PSSA guidelines and UNCLOS, as well as the competency of IMO to adopt mandatory protective measures in these areas. As a result, IMO conducted a review process which led to substantially updated guidelines adopted in late 2005. This book provides a detailed analysis of the PSSA guidelines and protective measures available in PSSAs. Emphasis is placed on their legal basis and the implications for coastal states' jurisdiction over vessel-source pollution.

The term “hazardous wastes” covers a wide range of disused products and production wastes generated not only in industrial sectors, but also in all areas of everyday life. Hazardous wastes are to a large extent shipped by sea to third countries for recycling or disposal. While the procedural requirements for such movements are laid out in the 1989 Basel Convention, explicit rules of responsibility and liability for resulting damages are neither provided by the Basel Convention nor by other international conventions. The Liability Protocol to the Basel Convention of 1999 has not yet entered into force. This book examines the existing rules of responsibility and liability applying to States and private persons and outlines the conditions under which liability may be incurred. Subsequently, the advantages and shortcomings of the 1999 Liability Protocol are analyzed. Although this Protocol faces substantial political headwind, from a legal perspective it includes principally useful and reasonable approaches and should therefore be ratified.

The general international law regarding foreign merchant ships in internal waters has never been codified. The question of the breadth of the territorial sea was finally solved during the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea. But conflicts between coastal States and foreign merchant ships in internal waters and the territorial sea may arise. This comprehensive study analyses these issues and strives for reasonable and generally acceptable solutions.

This study provides an in-depth analysis of the Hong Kong Ship Recycling Convention as adopted in May 2009 and a thorough analysis of the overall status quo of ship recycling regulations. It investigates the lack of sufficient ratifications of the Convention from both a legal and an economic perspective. The first part of the study focuses on the history of the Convention’s entry-into-force provision and the rationale behind it. Due to the fact that this provision provides a considerable additional obstacle to the Convention’s becoming legally binding, in the second part the focus of the work shifts to unilateral action in this field. An overview of the legal environment of European ship recycling legislation is followed by an analysis and evaluation of a number of proposals by the European Commission attempting to tackle the problems of current ship recycling procedures. With a particular emphasis on (planned) European measures in this regard, the analysis’ overall message is one of cautious optimism.
