Abstract

Examines, with reference to the sinking of the Titanic, the evolution of marine casualty investigations. Reviews the disaster's influence on the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea 1914, the development of courts of marine inquiry, and the questions put to the Titanic's court of inquiry. Discusses the confidentiality of self-incriminating answers to questions put under the International Standards and Recommended Practices for a Safety Investigation into a Marine Casualty or Marine Incident, and notes the Titanic's influence on a 2005 Namibian marine casualty investigation
