Legal Update: Singapore: Intention to implement the 1996 Protocol to LLMC 1976 and the International Convention on Salvage, 1989
On 14 January 2019, the Singapore Parliament passed the Merchant Shipping (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill. The main objectives of the Bill are to amend the Merchant Shipping Act to implement i) the 1996 Protocol to the 1976 LLMC; and ii) the International Convention on Salvage, 1989.
Although the Bill has been passed by the Singapore Parliament, the amendments have yet to come into force and a further update will be provided in due course.
