[Reproduced from the annex of I.M.C.O. Document LEG V/6 of March 11, 1969.

[The Legal Committee of the Inter-Governmental Maritime Consultative Organization held its fifth session March 4-7, 1969. The draft articles are the result of that meeting. The draft convention has been circulated to governments for their comments, and will constitute a basic working document at the International Legal Conference on Marine Pollution Damage, to be convened by I.M.C.O. November 10-28, 1969. The draft convention on the public law aspects of oil pollution will also be a basic working document of the Conference. It appears at page 466.

[Other documents dealing with oil pollution in this issue of International Legal Materials are: the Tanker Owners’ voluntary agreement concerning liability for oil pollution, at page 497, and the Canada-United States letter on the risks of oil pollution in Lake Erie, at page 627.]

** [The brackets indicate those issues on which the Legal Committee did not come to a definite decision. With regard to final clauses of the convention, the Legal Committee felt that in view of the special nature of the problems posed by such clauses, they would be better dealt with by the diplomatic conference scheduled for November 1969.]

[* Throughout the Convention the words “owner”, “owned” should be respectively changed to “operator”, “operated”.]
