New legislation on Marine insurance: legal problems, international comparison and business practice

This paper aims to scrutinize the subject of the assurance of shipowners for maritime loans and its impact on the practise of companies with special attention on the port cluster of Naples. The enacting of the 2009/20/CE directive of April 23th, 2009 at Community level has created a new legal framework now making responsible mainly the economical operators, increasing the quality of mercantile maritime transport and harmonizing the phenomenon in terms of assurances in the field of ship owning at Community level. In Italy, the legislative decree 111/2012 has obliged realization of the 2009/20/UE directive. This legislature at community level determines that the member states render obligatory an assurance of responsibility to a maximum amount according to the clauses of the IMO Convention concerning the maritime loans from 1976 in the way it was modified by the protocol in 1996 (LLMC Convention). The directive presupposes that the member states follow the LLMC Convention, something Italy has not done so far, since in our country the Convention has not yet gone into effect. As a consequence, the legislator is in charge of imposing the execution of the directive while our system lacks of the norms presupposed by it. Hence, the practical application of the 111/2012 directive implicates major issues.
