The agenda includes a discussion on the output of the last IMO Legal Committee (LEG 109), covering the 2010 HNS Protocol, measures to assess the need to amend liability limits, the claims manual for the International Convention on Civil Liability for Bunker Oil Pollution Damage and maritime autonomous surface shipping. Members will also be invited to discuss the future agenda and way of working of the Committee, including IMO coverage. Finally, Marcus John (TT Club) will provide a presentation on port authority risk issues.
