Description/Abstract

In the 1999 issue of the AMPLA Law Journal, Dr. Michael White QC reported on the Comite Maritime Internationale (CMI) proposals for an international convention on offshore mobile craft. In this paper, Mr Richard Shaw, Chairman of the CMI International Subcommittee on Offshore Mobile Craft and Structures, summarises the arguments for and against such a convention as advanced recently before the Legal Committee of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and argues, with reference to three specific legal concepts, and with particular reference to the FPSO that clarification of the law at an international level is needed.
