  • Abstract:
    There are at present at least three international regimes of maritime cargo liability in force in different countries of the world - the original Hague rules (1924), the updated version known as the Hague-Visby rules (1968, further amended 1979), and the Hamburg rules (1978).There is, however, considerable dissatisfaction with each of these regimes - with Hague and Hague-Visby because they are often seen as in need of modernization and as too restricted in scope, and with all three because of disagreements over the substance. The report gives main features of a cargo liability regime covering sea transport. It then notes the main areas in which the principal current regimes differ between themselves or deal with cargo liability less than comprehensively. It finally gives a qualitative analysis of items where there is disagreement, and possible compromise formulations that could form the basis of a widely acceptable set of Common Rules. Appendices, tables, 57 p.
