OIL SPILL LAWS
1. International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution of the Sea by Oil 1954, as amended in 1962.
2. International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage 1969, [Civil Liability Convention].
3. International Convention on the Establishment of an International Fund for Compensation for Oil Pollution Damage 1971, [Fund Convention].
International Convention on the Prevention of Marine Pollution by the Dumping of Wastes and other Matters 1972 [London Convention].
Convention on Co-operation in the Protection and Development of the Marine and Coastal Environment of West and Central Africa Region 1981.
Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal 1989.
International Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Control 1990.
These international agreements regulate different aspects of oil pollution damage by prohibiting certain conduct, imposing liability, setting up compensation schemes, pollution control and establishing reporting and response systems.
There are two categories of Claims which might arise as a result of oil spills:
1. Claims for Clean-up costs which are payable to Government or other authorities which have incurred such costs for preventing or minimizing pollution damage, and
2. Claims made by private bodies or individuals who have suffered damage.
Under International Law, when a spill occurs, Claims for clean-up costs and damage is governed by two conventions adopted under the auspices of the International Maritime Organization [IMO], that is:
*The International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage 1969 [Civil Liability Convention] and
*The International Convention on the Establishment of an International Fund for Compensation for Oil Pollution Damage 1971 [Fund Convention].
