404 - 03/05 - International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage, 1992 (1992 CLC)

Members may be pleased to note that from 9th June 2005, the 1992 CLC will take effect in Malaysia replacing the 1969 CLC. From this date Malaysia will require tankers flying its flag or tankers trading to its waters to carry a 1992 CLC Certificate. As Malaysia is the last known State which still requires the 1969 CLC certificate (despite the IMO's Resolution adopted in 2000 inviting the 1969 CLC States not to require ships holding 1992 CLC Certificates to also hold 1969 CLC Certificates), it appears that, from this date, the 1992 CLC Certificate will be truly accepted in all CLC countries.
