Nearly one hundred participants from several European countries attended the conference. The new limitation of liability convention CLNI 2012 was i.a. discussed during the conference. In addition, the implementation of the Convention into national law was dealt with. Also, the guidelines on how to transpose the CLNI into national law, which were developed by the Legal Committee of IVR, were presented.
We proudly look back on two successful and informative days!
Dr. Martin Fischer, the chair of the Legal Committee of the IVR, handed the guidelines on how to transpose the CLNI into national law over to the representatives of the Danube Commission and the Central Commission for the Rhine. These Guidelines were developed by the Legal Committee of IVR in order to support a broad deployment of the convention as well as the Judgements CLNI/CNMI.
Theresia Hacksteiner, Secretary General of IVR, presented a collection of rulings on CMNI and CLNI, providing a unique comparison of jurisprudence in the various countries with a short summary of the essence of the case and a reference to the relevant articles. IVR thus aims to contribute to a uniform and autonomous interpretation of these international conventions in all concerning countries.
