 International Maritime Organization (IMO) is supporting a Regional Workshop for Latin-American countries in Argentina to implement and ratify treaties dealing with liability and compensation. 

 
The workshop, took place in Buenos Aires (14-18 May), has provided a comprehensive overview of the IMO liability regime, including treaties covering wreck removal, salvage, carriage of hazardous and noxious substances, passengers, CLC, Fund, Bunkers Convention and limitation of liability.
 
The history of the treaties’ development, their principles and practical implications are all being covered, with a view to supporting officials to implement relevant obligations in national legislation. 
 
The workshop is being run by IMO’s Jan de Boer and hosted by the Maritime Authority of Argentina (Prefectura Naval Argentina) with the regional maritime authorities network, ROCRAM, as implementing partner.
