The Role of the Liability of the Shipowner
- The liability of shipowner is important for shipping industry. In most countries including Myanmar domestic legislation and international conventions ordinary limit and exclude the liability of the shipowner. The shipowner excludes from the liability to the loss or damage of goods due to the fire and the loss or damage to undeclared valuable without fault and privity of the shipowner. Similarly, the shipowner limits from liability of the loss of life and personal injury without fault and privity of shipowner. And also, it protects the shipowner under the Merchant Shipping Act, 1894 and the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act, 1971. In Myanmar, the provisions of the Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wreck, 2015 should be enacted into national legislation.
