Detail of outcome
This report provides a summary of responses to the consultation and notes how the government has responded to the views and comments of those consultees that responded.
The Department for Transport (DfT) seeks your views on our assessment of the impacts that may arise from proposals to increase maritime liability limits. These limits are set out in the Convention on Limitation of Liability for Maritime Claims 1976, as amended by the 1996 Protocol (LLMC). They came into force internationally on 8 June 2015 and would take effect in the UK through secondary legislation.
DfT is also asking for your feedback on a proposed package of other amendments that we would like to make to simplify existing maritime legislation.
