Regulation of carriage of goods

This chapter focuses on hybrid carriage regimes. After the coming into force of the Hamburg Rules in 1992, a number of countries which had not ratified them took steps towards their domestic implementation. There are a number of hybrid domestic regimes in civil law countries. In China, the Maritime Law of the PRC of 1992 contains provisions on carriage of goods by sea drawn from the Hague and Hague-Visby Rules and also from the Hamburg Rules. During the period of national initiatives, the Comité Maritime International’s (CMI) role at the vanguard of unifying instruments, in this and other areas of maritime law, was challenged. Nevertheless, it continued to undertake work on the uniformity of carriage regimes. The chapter then looks at the Rotterdam Rules.
