Guyana Deposits 11 International Maritime Organization Instruments

February 23, 2019 

Guyana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, His Excellency Frederick Hamley Case, recently deposited 11 international instruments of accession at the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

This exercise comes on the heels of Guyana’s recent ratification of 12 international instruments pertaining to the development of the maritime sector and the oil and gas industries.

The treaties, which were ratified in November 2018, range from the prevention of pollution from ships and dumping waste at sea to a maritime labour convention that establishes seafarers right to decent work conditions.
