Abstract

This Protocol extends the application of the 1969 Liability Convention to include the exclusive economic zone of a Contracting State established in accordance with international law, or if a Contracting State has not established such a zone, in an area beyond and adjacent to the territorial sea of that State determined by that State in accordance with international law and extending not more than 200 nautical miles from baseline from which the breadth of its territorial sea is measured (art. 3). It further extends the scope of the liability for pollution damage to be covered (art. 4 (1)) and changes the unit of account from the franc to Special Drawing Rights as defined by the International Monetary Fund (art. 6(4)).
