Limitation of Liability for Maritime Claims
New Zealand enacted legislation in 1987 which is broadly in line with the 1976 Limitation Convention. It did not accede to the Convention until 1994. Also in 1994 it enacted legislation giving effect to the Hague Visby Rules, and acceded to the Brussels Protocols of 1968 and 1979. New Zealand has not acceded to or enacted legislation giving effect to the Athens Convention of 1974.
