Detailed programme confirmed for HNS Workshop

Posted: 17/03/2023

A more detailed programme for the upcoming HNS workshop on 3 and 4 April 2023 has now been confirmed.

Speakers from Contracting States, industry experts and other key stakeholders will join presenters from the event organisers, namely, Canada, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the IOPC Funds, to deliver a focused, informative, current and interactive workshop which is intended to assist States in their work towards ratification of the 2010 HNS Protocol and ultimately accelerate its entry into force.

The event will be conducted in a hybrid format, with representatives participating either in person at the headquarters of the IMO in London, or remotely.

The latest detailed programme for the workshop is available here.

It is expected that the workshop will be of interest to representatives of States considering ratifying the 2010 HNS Protocol and participation is open to all Governments, IGOs and NGOs in consultative status with IMO and IOPC Funds which have pertinent expertise. Participation of policy and decision-makers with respect to this matter is particularly encouraged.

To register for the event please see IMO Circular Letter No.4620/Rev.1.
