The Comité Maritime International (CMI) has been revising the rules on general average for quite some time now. Switzerland is represented in this project by our member Mr. Andreas Bach.
Despite multiple attempts from various national maritime law associations the revisions have been rather modest so far. The International Working Group (IMG) is currently discussing, processing and preparing the revisions as agenda item for the CMI conference in New York (May 2016).
Here you will find the documents relating to the project.
