Claims & Compensation

South Gallery Room 16

Organised by IOPC Funds

Level: No previous knowledge required.

Instructors: IOPC Funds

Oil spills from tankers may result in thousands of claimants and losses can run into the hundreds of millions. Clean-up and preventive measures, especially following a large oil spill, can be particularly difficult and costly, while extensive damage to property and significant economic loss are also known to occur. In the aftermath of an incident, it is not always clear where to go to claim compensation.

This course is aimed at providing regulators and responders with background information on how to maximise legitimate cost recovery. It will follow what happens after a tanker spill and explain how claims are submitted and assessed under the international oil pollution liability and compensation regime. Case studies and practical examples will be included to help attendees get a better understanding of the claims process.
