Shipping Australia Narobi convention wreck removal webinar
Shipping Australia is pleased to announce that it will be convening a webinar on the wreck removal convention (known as the The Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks (2007) or "the Nairobi Convention").

The Convention looks at responsibility for wreck removal, what measures can be taken and how it can be enforced. Tricky matters such as who pays for what are also tackled by the Convention.
