Australian Maritime Safety Authority Salvage and Wreck Workshop
Sydney, 28 November 2017
Sam Kendall-Marsden, Legal Director, attended this event on behalf of the club and The International Group. It was a valuable opportunity to discuss current arrangements and roles, learn from past experiences, and anticipate and plan for future challenges. It was also an opportunity for International Group clubs to share their experiences and expertise in major casualty management as part of an outreach programme with maritime authorities around the world. Over the two days of the workshop we heard from a number of high-calibre local and international speakers on topics including international liability and compensation regimes, the role of insurers and other third parties during incidents, government intervention during a maritime casualty incident, risk management and mitigation, salvage capability in Australia, and the Nairobi Wreck Removal Convention and the Australian context.
