The shipowners oppose themselves to the imposition of a compensation for the “environmental recovery”

The Insurance Committe of the ICS rejects the proposal of the International Salvage Union

The shipowners oppose themselves to the proposal advanced from the International Salvage Union (ISU) for the imposition of a separate compensation for the “environmental recovery” in the cases in which who takes care of the rescue in occasion of marine incidents he has carried out participations regarding a ship or of its cargo that represents a risk for the atmosphere.

To conclusion of the today's reunion of own Insurance Committe, the shipowning association world-wide International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has restated own firm opposition regarding such proposal and has manifested extreme worry for the future of the Rules of York and Antwerp in matter of common damage. The ICS has remembered that both the arguments will be examined by the Comité Maritime International (CMI), the international association of the marittimisti lawyers, than the next week to Beijing will meet in assembly, to which they will be you anticipate representatives of the ICS.

“the ICS - it has emphasized the president of the Insurance Committe of the shipowning association, Matheos Los - continues to being absolutely skeptical approximately the proposal of an additional compensation for the environmental recovery, in particular since the rescue services are already generous remunerated in the within of the current system”. Currently the remuneration due to the rescue services is calculated applying the Scopic Clause, clause that is defined by the International Salvage Union, the International Group of P&I Clubs and by London Property Underwriters with the consent of the same ICS.

The main worry of the ICS - it has explained the association - is that unavoidably such a compensation would demand the introduction of skills with complicated instruments, as has happened in the United States, and that such procedure will be not only revealed complicated and expensive but, in the final analysis will be extended the times of acknowledgment and compensation of the damages. “Such complicating and being extended procedure - it has found Los - would not be in the interest of nobody, in last analysis not of the rescuers who, in any case, have already express great satisfaction for the current system of the Scopic”.
