ICC SUPPORTS ROTTERDAM RULES RATIFICATION

The International Chamber of Commerce has come out in support of the UN Convention on the International Carriage of Goods, known as the 'Rotterdam Rules'. The treaty is an attempt to harmonise the law governing the transport of goods by sea, which is presently subject to a number of different liability regimes.

"As the world business organization, the International Chamber of Commerce recognizes the importance of developing a harmonized, international ocean cargo regime that is both sound and balanced," the ICC Commission on Transport and Logistics and the ICC Committee on Maritime Transport said in the joint statement. The statement added that the ocean cargo regime should also take into account modern developments such as containerisation, multimodal transport, and e-commerce.

"Given that the proposed regime will underpin an important element of international commerce, ICC asks governments to consider ratification of the convention. This should be done in active consultation with international business - including shippers, carriers, forwarders and insurers, noting that these constituencies may have differing views on the regime."

"ICC stands ready to proactively facilitate business input into national and international discussions on the ratification of the Rotterdam Rules, with a view to bringing about uniformity in this important area of international law."
