The Rotterdam Rules represent the most comprehensive overhaul of the law of carriage of goods by sea in more than fifty years. To coincide with the signing ceremony, six members of the Institute of Maritime Law have written a detailed commentary on the Rules. The Rotterdam Rules: A Practical Annotation examines the text of the Rules, all ninety-six articles of the new Convention, and compares them to the text of the Hague-Visby Rules, the instrument currently covering most bills of lading. The authors have also examined the judgments in cases decided in the English Courts under the Carriage of Goods by Sea Acts of 1971 and 1992 and have indicated whether these cases would be decided differently under the new Rotterdam Rules.

This book is based on papers presented at the Sixth International Colloquium in September 2009, organized by the Institute of International Shipping and Trade at Swansea University. The 16 contributions have been written by a team of international experts who collectively submit the newly proposed Rotterdam Rules to a sustained, penetrative, and comprehensive analysis.

The scale of the Rules is staggeringly wide, as also are their detail and complexity, and coming to a full understanding of the provisions and implications of the Rules represents a challenge even to those experienced in the law and practice of commercial shipping. The book examines virtually all aspects of the Rules and provid

The main focus of this book is the impact of maritime fraud on contracts for sale and carriage, documentary credits and marine insurance. It covers all varieties of maritime fraud, from the most serious downwards, describing the methods employed and the risks to traders and carriers. At the serious end of the spectrum, pirates capture an entire ship, often murdering the entire crew, in order to sell the cargo (to which of course they have no title), later to use the “innocent” ship to pose as innocent traders. Less serious (but perhaps of greater interest to lawyers) are misdescriptions of cargo in, or backdating of, bills of lading, and other deceptions, usually practised on purchasers and banks.
