LLMC amendment in Norwegian Maritime Code

IMO adopted in April 2012 amendments to the 1996 Protocol to the Convention on Limitation for Maritime Claims, raising the limits by 51 %. The amendments shall enter into force by 8 June 2015.

Norway has consented to the 1996 Protocol. The new limits will require amendments to Chapter 9 of the Norwegian Maritime Code. The proposed legislation from the Ministry of Justice is open for comments until 19 February 2014.
