A sharp, informed and thoroughly practical guide to contemporary and developing issues relating to sea pollution, prepared by leading academics and practitioners with everyday hands-on experience. Pollution at Sea focuses on a number of the vital private law issues – compensation, insurance, contract and tort – thrown up by contemporary developments in the law of pollution. The book also intends to offer a critical analysis on emerging public law concepts, such as the legal position of seafarers from the perspective of criminal law in cases of pollution and the impact of port state control as a pollution control mechanism. Pollution at Sea is divided into three parts: 1. Private Law Liability Regimes 2. Rights and Liabilities of Particular Parties 3. The Impact of Public Law on the Actors Concerned In part 1; various liability regimes are dissected, including those which have been under the spotlight in recent years. This section has particular international appeal, and many of the regimes discussed are based at least in part on international conventions, agreements or practices. In part 2; the impact of pollution at sea on third parties is considered, with respect to the legal position of parties that might be perused either by the victims of pollution incidents or in some cases by the parties liable by way of a recourse action. Finally in part 3; recent relevant developments, particularly in the realm of public law are covered.

Given the magnitude of the risks associated with commercial activities in the Arctic arising as a result of the milder climate, new business opportunities raise important questions of responsibility and liability. This book analyses the issues of responsibility and liability connected with the exploitation of natural resources, marine transport and other activities in the Arctic. Applying a combined private and public law perspective on these issues, it considers both the business and societal interests related to Arctic development using Greenland as an example. The book focuses on problems that are specific to Greenland and wider issues that affect all Arctic states.

Authors Edgar Gold, Aldo Chircop, and Hugh Kindred have written the first general treatment of Canadian maritime law to be published since 1916. This comprehensive text covers the whole of modern shipping law. The work provides insight into the Canadian experience and practice in this field and will appeal to legal practitioners, marine insurers, government officials, students and all others concerned with the regulation of the shipping and boating industries. It includes discussion of important differences between Canadian and US and UK maritime law. For students and practitioners new to the field, the text explains the law surrounding the life of working vessels and pleasure craft in plain language and defines all technical legal and shipping terms as it proceeds. For experienced legal and other practitioners, it affords the means to analyse maritime situations, marine incidents, boating accidents, and other ship related events according to Canadian regulations and precedents, with due notice of their divergence from US and UK practice in this intensely internationalized area of law.

Die Dritthaftung von Klassifikationsgesellschaften

English summary: Classification societies establish and apply technical standards in relation to the design, construction and supervision of ships. Their principal contracting partners are ship builders and ship owners. Increasingly, classification societies are being faced with damage claims initiated by members of the shipping industry with whom they have not established a contractual relationship. Under German law but in a comparative perspective, Jurgen Basedow and Wolfgang Wurmnest examine such third party claims. They focus in particular on how such claims are affected by limitation of liability clauses agreed upon between the classification society and its contracting partners. German description: Klassifikationsgesellschaften sind die technischen Uberwachungsorganisationen der Seeschiffahrt. In jungerer Zeit sind sie verstarkt Anspruchen Dritter ausgesetzt, mit denen sie keine Vertragsbeziehungen unterhalten. Diese Tendenz ist weltweit zu beobachten, wie aktuelle Falle vor englischen, neuseelandischen und US-amerikanischen Gerichten belegen. Dritte versuchen sich vor allem im Anschluss an Schiffskatastrophen, aber auch im Zuge von Schiffsverkaufen, an einer Klassifikationsgesellschaft schadlos zu halten. Jurgen Basedow und Wolfgang Wurmnest untersuchen, welche Anspruche solchen Dritten nach deutschem Recht gegen eine Klassifikationsgesellschaft zustehen und welche Bedeutung hierbei Haftungsbeschrankungen zukommt, die eine Klassifikationsgesellschaft mit ihren Vertragspartnern vereinbart. Somit steht die privatrechtliche Haftung von Klassifikationsgesellschaften im Mittelpunkt dieses Buches; ihre Haftung fur hoheitliches Handeln wird nur am Rande gestreift. Die Autoren arbeiten die Problematik rechtsvergleichend auf und beziehen dabei das australische, englische, franzosische, neuseelandische und US-amerikanische Recht ein. Die von ihnen vertretene Losung steht im Einklang mit dem fein austarierten System der Haftungsverteilung und -beschrankung des internationalen Seerechts, welches massgeblich durch volkerrechtliche Ubereinkommen gepragt wird.
