Implementation of the Salvation Convention 1989


RESOLUTION ON INTERNATIONAL CO-OPERATION FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION ON SALVAGE, 1989

 

THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SALVAGE, 1989,

In adopting the International Convention on Salvage, 1989 (hereinafter referred to as "The Convention"),

Considering it desirable that as many States as possible should become Parties to the Convention,

Recognizing that the entry into force of the Convention will represent an important additional factor for the protection of the marine environment,

Considering that the international publicizing and wide implementation of the Convention is of the utmost importance for the attainment of its objectives,


I Recommends:

(a) that the Organization promote public awareness of the Convention through the holding of seminars, courses and symposia;
(b) that training institutions created under the auspices of the Organization include the study of the Convention in their corresponding courses of study.

II Requests:

(a) Member States to transmit to the Organization the text of the laws, orders, decrees, regulations and other instruments that they promulgate concerning the various matters falling within the scope of application of the Convention;
(b) Member States, in consultation with the Organization, to promote the giving of help to those States requesting technical assistance for the drafting of laws, orders, decrees, regulations and other instruments necessary for the implementation of the Convention; and
(c) the Organization to notify Member States of any communication it may receive under paragraph II(a)

Having been informed that State Parties to the Convention had not supplied to IMO information as to the manner in which they had implemented the Convention, the CMI suggested to IMO to draw up and circulate a Questionnaire with the view to collecting information in that respect.

A Synopsis of the responses received as at June 2004 is published in the CMI Yearbook 2004-Vancouver II. Since, however, new responses were received thereafter, an updated Synopsis, including the responses received so far, is published hereafter.

The Synopsis is preceded by a list of the States Parties.

The complete text of the responses, arranged under each question, is also published.
